Re: Connecting an extra computer to Internet

Dear All,

I have a cable-based (not optic) modem/router to connect to the
Internet (ADSL), which works fine. However, a friend comes in from
time to time, bringing her laptop. Is there some cheap and easy way of
letting her laptop to connect to Internet? Unfortunately, I cannot see
any place in the modem/router to connect an extra cable...

Thanks in advance,


Do you have a router installed, or are you connecting your computer
directly to the DSL modem? The two are usually separate devices, with
the router sitting between the modem and the computer. Routers
generally have at least 4 network jacks. The one I use at home is a
wireless router as well, which is much more convenient for laptops.
