  1. Right simple set up..2 computers in the house, one currently with broadband, hence now!
    I want both of them to be connected to broadband and I know that Ill obviously have to upgrade my service with my provider.
    This will require a router, but one thing, will I need to network the computers. I dont want to do this at all, Id prefer having 2 completely separate pcs like it is now.
    Thanks for any help!

    You can either upgrade your connection e.g. get a separate connection from your ISP or network your computers. No need to do both.

    So I can simply upgrade and use the connection with both computers without having to network the two pcs. Thats very simply what i want to do just Id like to know if that can be done.
