I have two computers (never used at the same time), one is upstairs. If I were to put a broadband modem on each one, with the existing phone sockets, would this work, more so would it be allowed ?. Thank you
You can use Broadband on both computers providing the spec on both is adequate.When you apply you will need the extra equipment provided by the ISP to enable you to use both computers.If you use one computer on Broadband the other one will not be able to use the internet because it will not be able to use the line.Regards
I think you can easily link both PC's with b'band if you use a wireless router. Since the signal on the wireless network is very strong, you can travel quite a distance though obstacles to get the signal. A friend once told me that he knew someone who had a wireless network at home. They have a PC in the basement where the router and ADSL modem are, and he has another PC on the top floor. The signal is strong enough to travel through 3 floors of wood and drywall. click here for some more info & prices. Good luck, G
Just a mention...you could rig up a simple ad hoc wireless network with just two of these. click here
I have not tried them so cannot vouch for the signal strength. With an ad hoc arrangement both pc's could access the net at the same time but only one would be connected to it directly. The other would access the net through the first (the gateway) and could therefore only do that when your first pc was switched on and on line. For more of the same click here and click here
This is not necessarily the best solution but may be a cheap one.
