High Speed Internet

by nita0658 / October 29, 2005 9:22 AM PDT

My question is my husband and I each have our own computer. We have dial up now but want to get high speed internet. Our computers sit back to back and I was wondering what are we going to purchased to have both computers on the high speed internet at the same time?

How do I know which one is best for a home environment?

There is a problem with the word "best".

That would lead to a long test phase of what routers that you can buy with you detailing what criteria makes up the test for "best."

Most of us will select a router with the features and price we want and go home...

Hope this makes sense.

I have had BellSouth DSL for several years. I upgraded to their homenetworking package about 3 years ago. My pc is connected per ethernet through a 2 Wire and my other 2 pc's are connected by USB PC Ports. No problems!!! Easy to connect, speeds are fairly consistent at 1.5 and price per month in only $42.95. Even my 11 y/o granddaughter can plug in her PC Port. The service is terrific. Had a wireless setup before and nobody at home could configure it if I wasn't here.....

I'd get a wireless broadband router that is compatible with wireless-g. Many popular routers for the home have four ports to make wired connections and the ability to connect wirelessly. Wireless is nice if you add a notebook computer to your collection (or have a guest).

After buying and returning 2 differnt brands, Fry's recommended that I try Liksys. I bought their WRT54GS 4 port wireless model. My 2 PCs are 40' apart and clear across the house. I had a few set up issues, but Linksys support is pretty decent.
