How can I share my ADSL line on 2 computers?

  LyricalG 23:59 02 Mar 2003

Ive just got a new PC, and have set up the ADSL line using the USB ADSL modem I used with my old PC. The old PC is now in another room, so what is the best and cheapest way to get the old PC to also be able to use the ADSL line?

Link the two systems together in a network, and set up Internet Connection Sharing.

You will need two LAN (network) cards- about £10-15 each, and a network crossover cable of the appropriate length. The software is all part of Windows.

As an added benefit you will also be able to share printer(s), and data files.
