I am getting Broadband and have had a Thomson SpeedTouch 330 modem sent to me ahead of activation. It has a port for the phone line and a USB port intended for a single PC. However, I have two PCs, so I understand I need a router. Does anyone know of a router with USB interface for the modem and 2 ethernet ports for the PCs?

They can be found but are rare and expensive.

A better bet is to replace your existing modem with a single modem/router such as click here

Just to clarify, you don't have to have a router, you can connect 2 PC's through ICS if you wish. click here the downside is the main PC would have to be on to obtain the connection on the second PC.
