please help me get to the bottom of a problem I do not seem to be able to get a straight answer to from my isp. I am currently on dialup but am getting a new comp at xmas for my daughter and wish to network them together so therefor b/band is going to be required. My isp are giving me different answers depending on which person i speak to one says i can do it on there 256 connection, then another says i need 512 at greater expence to myself, who is right as the difference in speed from one to the other means a difference of £10.00 a month to me, thanks in anticipation of your replies.

You can network the internet at almost any speed. I used to have them connected with a 14.4 modem. but get the best speed you find affordable. If thats 256 it will be fast enough.
