I want to connect two PCs to the internet through an Ntl cable broadband modem.
I want to be able to use the internet on my new PC without having to have the current PC (near the Ntl box) turned on.
I have been told that in order to do this I will need a router.
I want to use wall sockets as the two PCs are on different floors of the house.
I have got the Ntl broadband modem, a router, a 10m cable to link the two sockets together, a RJ45 crossover wire and a RJ45 patch wire. I also have what I believe to be another RJ45 patch wire that came with my Ntl broadband modem.
The problem I have is in wiring the two wall sockets together with the 10m cable. The cable has four pairs of twisted wires, one green and white, one blue and white, one brown and white, and one orange and white. The wall sockets have eight "ports" to put the wires into.
