I am soon to be enjoying a wide band ADSL internet connection and wish to
share it between two computers, one a 700mhz machine running Windows 2000
Professional, and the second a 500mhz machine with Windows 98se.
I will install CAT5 cabling to two outlets close to both PC's and install a
10/100 NIC in both.
My main questions are:
Do I require a hub or router or both ( I have seen the Linksys cable/dsl
router advertised in the US, this seems ideal but only comes with a RJ45
connection to the ADSL modem, if this product is usable are they available
in the UK)
Can I share a printer with either of the above
The ADSL modem is a USB type, is this compatible with the above
Which network protocol is best for the above
Which is the best internet connection sharing software
Will both of the machines be able to access the net simultaneously
I hope I have supplied the necessary information for my query, if not I will
be happy to repost.
Thanks in anticipation
