Cable modem router

Hello all, first post.

I would like to know if I bought a cable modem router, will I be able to use 2 different computers at same time, and not have to add to subscription? thanks.

The short answer is yes. You'll need to set up the network properly of course, but it's not that hard. Most routers come with pretty good instructions to do just what you're doing.

Depending on what kind of broadband connection, there are different ways to set it up. But it's usually pretty simple. Just make sure you duplicate all of the entries present on your computer right now on the router. Most cable companies need the computer name to be exact. Most DSL companies use PPPoE, so you need the user name and password. If you have any problems, let us know.

Stay with Linksys routers! They are the industry standard and almost hippie proof! You will need a two channel router, two NIC cards, preferably Kingston. And your ISP's full path settings. DNS numbers, IP addresses etc. Linksys will literally lead you by the hand during install and they even have free phone support.
