Default routers, two comps

do routers automatically detect if two computers are using broadband so it
shares the connection speed? so if one computer wasn't connected to the
internet, the router would detect that and give the other computer the full
2 mbps, rather then still share it.
thanx

TCPIP theory isn't exactly like that, but in practice this is what
happens. When 2 machines are sharing a connection you don't get 1MB
each, both machines share the 2MB, and the speed each gets is based on
the data throughput they are using.
