Default 1 broadband loine - 2 computers sharing . . ?

One house, one adsl line, two computers which want to share the one
adsl line.
Questions - which ISPs allow this? Which ISPs provide the equpiment to
make this possible?
I know that BT Internet offer a homenetwork which seems very good (2
comps connected thur the phone sockets - no need for wires etc) but BT
internet dont offer stuff like email and newsgroups.
Id be very grateful for any suggestions - especially from ppl who
actually have 2 comps networked to use one ADS and can speak from
experienc

you need a broadband router, which connects to your ADSL modem.

you also need a network card in the PC's.

try and get a router that has a built in 4 port switch .

then use cat5 network cable to connect the pc's to the switch

this is very common, so if you google broadband router you will find
millions of pages.
or google broadband sharing

You're having us on right? You've never heard of www.adslguide.org.uk

Wireless and CAT5 same thing eh? Google and search a mystery yes?

the questions were
which ISPs allow this?
Which ISPs (other than BT) provide the equpiment to make this
possible?

why do unpleasant abusive people like you have to make an appearance
in an otherwise very helpful newsgroup?

How the hell are freeserve going to know that you have 2 or more pc
connected via a router to their ADSL service, short of coming to your house
and looking.

They often find out when another member of the familiy calls their
helpline and mentions that a number of PC's are connected. Perhaps
they then flag the account as having more than one PC?

What utter tosh!

Imagine this - you are paying for an always on connection to move data.
Unless the amount of data you can move is capped it matters not if you have
a million machines connected on a single connection.

F9 don't seem to care for one. I'm sure someone with a good head for maths
here can deduce that no matter how many machines connect the rate of data
will still be x kbps regardless of how many machines are using that
connection. Multiply that by seconds in the month that you are paying for
and no matter how many machines it still comes out the same :-)




unfortunately while common sense sides with you the previous poster is
not posting tosh because many isps and bt especially feel their home
adsl option is for single use only and while thay cant stop you using a
network they can tell if you are because your private ip address is
embedded in the packets if they care to look
