Do I need a adsl modem in each pc or is there a way of connecting to the pc
with an adsl modem with the other pc just using it's 56k modem, it is only a

Your with BTO/BT Broadband with your ISP right? (not that it makes
much of a difference) but you have too choices.

Peer to peer network, involves leaving the "main" PC on connected to
the internet with an ADSL modem. The 2nd PC is connected via a
crossover cat 5 cable to the first and 'shares' the connection. (uses
Internet Connection Sharing software like that built in to many of the
MS OS's, but 3rd party tools are available to do the same thing).

Your second option is to get an ADSL router, which negates the need
for any PC to share its connection, hence removes the need for any PCs
to be on, except those that need be (obviously).

The first option is your cheapest, the second can cost anything from
50 upwards.

www.btofaq.net/v3/forum & www.adslguide.org are two links you should
check out.

ASR 8100 - 1 port ethernet router (so can connect to a hub or NIC), also has
a USB interface (so two PCs can connect even if you don't have a hub)

currently 32.85 inc VAT. At this price is really isn't worth buying a
modem.

I've got the 4-port version - very pleased so far

Not with any ISP at the moment just waiting for the line to be activated and
I'll be with Fast4. I've got enough wires around already. Surely a couple
of bluetooth dongles would do the trick for a wireless network / bb net
sharing etc ??


Bluetooth is certainly an option given hardware availability. But
this (along with the likes of HPNA technologies) are as of yet a
relatively untested area. Fixed and wi-fi technologies are emerging
as the preferred options.
