Depending on your modem/router you can run as many computers as you like from one account.

We run 3 computers on our broadband connection using a wireless router. Two PC's are side by side so are actually wired but the 3rd is on another floor and works just fine with the wireless connection. Apart from having to buy the right equipment, it won't cost you anything else.

Many thanks for your very prompt reply €dstowe. Please excuse my naivite, but can I do this even with a different e-mail address?

John - Yes, each computer can have its own (different) email address.
