Default Multiple PC's on a single ADSL connection

Assuming a normal BT installation (a master socket in the hall, and
secondary extensions elsewhere), is it possible to connect three PC's to
three different sockets, all with their own modems/routers?

Not really. Probably you want to have one router and connect the
machines to the router via cable or wireless.

Of course you can but don't expect them to work! You need a single ADSL
modem/ router and connect the three PCs by network cables or wireless. Take
a look at www.adslguide.org.uk and browse the beginners section. This should
help you more.

Of course it is. Just make sure only one mahine+modem is powered up.

Paul

Thanks for the prompt response.

When you say 'not really', do you mean 'no' or just that it wouldn't
work well?

You could only have one of the DSL modems/routers working at any one
time, which I imagine is not what you are trying to do.

"Not really" - "technically, yes, but I doubt that it will achieve what
you are trying to achieve".

No, you only get one public IP and that will be assigned to one of the
routers. You run multiple PC of one router (wired/wireless).


Bill, does it follow then that this arrangement will work if the ISP
provides multiple static IP's?

No.

Can you please confirm what you are actually trying to do, so we can
better understand where you are coming from?

If your ISP provides multiple static IPs then you need a single ADSL
modem connecting to a router (which might be part of the same box) that
can handle those IPs.

Actually you can't even have more than 1 ADSL modem attached at any
one time whether the others are powered up or not..
