    Each computer you hook to the network has to have its own networking port. Whether you have one built into the mainboard or you get it by means of a PCI card, each has to have one. You'll plug your internet connection into the router/switch. Then you'll send out cables from the switch to your computers. I'm not keen on wireless (I'm a security-minded type), but basic networking principles will still apply.

    Oh, and make sure you change the default password on the switch when you get your network set up. This is one of the easiest ways to circumvent a wireless system.

    EDIT: Scratch the cable portion, forgot you're looking wireless here. As long as both systems have a wireless network adapter, you'll be able to utilize this feature.

    On the net at the same time, probably... but you will see a decrease in performance. To start off with, ISDN isn't that fast of a service. When you use a network like this you will be sharing that same bandwidth between the two machines.

    As to the "probably" statement above, some ISPs take steps to make sure that more than one connection to the internet does not occur on the same account. For general purposes, both machines would be seen to have the same IP address if probed from outside (the different internal IPs are handled by the router/switch). BUT... there are means that an ISP can use to check for network connections. If you have any problems with connectivity after everything is set up properly, check with your ISP to see if they allow what you're attempting to do.

    Of course, your best bet (if you can afford it) is to look into broadband and then network that connection.

    i feel really bad for forgeting/ coming up with all these questions but i have another

    wat type of cord goes from the pc (#1) to the router? is it a crose over cable or a normal 1?

    and i think from the modem to the router is a s-bus cable am i right? (also is there another name for s-bus - is it possible to use a WAN cord?) - (THIS IS MY MAJOR PROBLEM PLZ HELP ME!!!)


    just making sure i can swap files, print from #2 using printer connected to computer #1 andplay networked games. (eg: GTA, redalert 2. etc)

    and can we still use the phone (2 digital phone lines) at the same time as wen wer on the net.
