I quote from Pacific Internet.........

Intel Pentium II 233 MHz, Intel Celeron 300Mhz, AMD K6 233Mhz (or higher/compatible)

Win 98 SE, Win 2000, Win ME, WinXP


70 MB of free hard disk space

One free built-in powered USB port with Intel chipset recommended or 10BASE-T Ethernet port (depending on modem)

CD ROM Drive

Your operating system's installation CD

refer to the company you are looking at they should provide this information typical min requirement is a pentium 233mhz

To be safe -

128 ram
6gig hard drive
300mhz cpu

Thats as low as I had it working on my spare pc, sharing a broadband connection via a 4 port router/firewall.

If your pc's spec is lower than that, then volley it right out the window, lol!

The most vital requirement is if you can receive broadband through you telephone system. Check with you telephone company before setting your hopes too high.
