  1. hello,

    i have sbc dsl (now att) at home and would like hook up a second computer to it. i got a second linksys adapter, but can't seem to get connected... it gives me the msg: internet cannot be found... what does that mean?

    thanks in advance for your help,

  4. Most of the modern modems allow two computers without the purchase of an additional router- they have the router/switch built into the modem. Some of the broadband companies have a modem with an antennae adding a third computer...
    • USB
    • Ethernet
    • Wireless (some modems)

    P.S. with qwest (I purchased an Actiontec router from them) I run all three without a router or a switch. It is actually faster...

    P.S.S. I also have a Cable connection for redundancy...I bought my Motorola modem (with rebate I made money) which does not have wireless...but I do not need wireless and would not suggest it for trading. And Yes! I am a consistently profitable "Retail Spot Forex Trader".
