Is it possible to disconnect my existing broadband connection with my main cptr [on ethernet] and plug in another cptr and use it for a while, say, to download updates,etc. I do not want to go to the expense of wireless networking. And can one purchase extensions for ethernet leads??

OK so far. Will I upset any settings relating to my main computer if I take the ethernet cable out, and plug in the cable from the second cptr. Excuse what seems a simple question, as I do not want any problems here or with NTL.

Bela thanks have read and more or less understood, can be done. Incidentally, how do you get those bits and pieces over your name?

SEASHANTY I do not want to go to that trouble just for a few minutes every so often to download updates etc. Thanks for the input though. The link earlier in the post says it can be done however.
