    Well I don't know how much it would cost in Canada but what I think is bout the easiest way to share a DSL connection is with a router. If you go this route I would suggest Linksys for the router

    i know that a router should be applied, i was wondering though how to configure this router. i have my eye on a linksys router which is pretty good. what do i have to do in order to configure this router to share the connection?

    thx, Apu

    pulg it in
    connect your pc's to it

    fairly simple.......if you run into any problems.....shouldnt be to hard to correct

    if I can network my home...then you can too.....I didnt even know what I was doing.....just bought it,plugged it in,connected pc's.......bamm...i got internet on 2 comps.

    the only thing I did myself was make my own cat5's

    Get a cheap internal modem and a cheap hub. Connect your PC's network card into the hub, connect the person who you are sharing it with's card into the hub aswell. Plug the internal DSL modem into your computer and your done !!!

    You forgot the important part about turning on ICS...
     
  7. getting a router is much better in the long term than a hub/ics sytem because it is much easier to maintain and means you dont have to have computers always on etc etc. i am using the linksys router, and it is excellent, and works very easily, with minimal setting up. if you want any help with it, just ask...
