Hi. I would like to share my broadband internet connection with my sons computer. But on further reading of the small print from my service provider they say I can only have one computer connected.Would it be possible to do it anyway? Or do they have ways of checking that you only have one computer connected? Thanks in advance for any advice.

I am running 2 machines at home of off my freeserve b/b, like you the small print says can only use on one machine, Yes it is easy to do, no I doubt very much they can tell (or even care), as only one ip address being used. I hoghly suspect that most home networks using b/b have this restriction but ignore it.

Thanks very much guys. Now I just have to get my head round the networking bit.
Another question sorry, Will networking work on win 98?
