using existing broadband connection for new laptop

  big_anne 19:33 09 Nov 2004

Using windows XP and have BT broadband connection can I do anything to allow me to use this connection with a new laptop as well as the PC??
Not sure if it means I have to set up a home network between the PC and the laptop. Any words of advise please (don't be too technical if poss)
Thanks Anne

Hi Anne,
My very simple method, using a USB modem is to install the software on both computers and plug in the USB modem into whichever one I wish to use.I do not really need a home network

Many thanks to Diodorus Siculus and Hamish for the quick responses to my query. I will look into these suggestions. It doesn't look too complicated
