Shared wireless router for broadband

  the hick 21:50 18 Sep 07

My daughter and two flatmates want to share a single wireless router on the incoming phone line. I have not set one up before. When setting-up, will they all have to use the same network name, WEP password and administrative password? The free leaflet I picked up in 'Currys' doesn't say anything about sharing a router. Any advice much appreciated.

All the computers have to use the same settings that is in the modem setup page to be able to connect. You should use WPA not Wep to connect, it's More secure. But you can set computers for there own mail and set the ISP smtp as the server for sending mail and collecting pop mail from other servers
