I have 2 computers that I want to network so I can share the printer & BB connection. They are close together so a cabled system will do. What I want to know is the the Telewest cable modem plugs into the lan connector on the one M/C, and lan connector is free on the other. Does this mean all I have to purchase is a network card for the M/C that the lan connector is being used on and connect the cable from the network card to the lan connection on the other M/C or am I missing something :confused:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
