  kane_2001 21:50 06 Sep 2005

I have 2 pcs which I want to share my NTL broadband, dont mind if wireless or not but have no idea which router to go for or what to look for. Both PCs are on Xp and new spec as such. Any ideas or suggestions?

I have 2 Puters on ntl and use the Linksys 4port
router BEFSR41. It will run on usb or enet and its cheap. Regards G.

for a year now with NTL cable with machines running linux ,98se and 2 XP pro.
very Easy to set up....

I have a Netgear RP 614 wired router attached to the NTL BB cable modem. Allows me to hook up 2 desktop pc's and my work laptop. Problem free!
