I have been asked to set a 2 computers to run off broadband.
They have freeserve.
I think its the stand package, but you can only run 1 computer off.
What do i need to conect them both ?
Do they need to buy a router or do they need a new modem ?
THANK YOU

Use what I have recently done, get two wireless pci cards, set them us as peer to peer aka ad-hoc.

Dont you have to have both computers on for this to work ?
If so not good.

Well yes you do, this is the cheapest Ad-hoc route. If you need the PC to be available whilst teh other is offline then you will need a router.

If you would like to access the net from either without the other being switched on then you will need a router.
The router is connected to the modem so you will not need to change it.
If you wish to share a printer from either machine without the other being switched on then you will need a print server or a router with a print server built in.
