"as i was under the impression that the modem would need to be USB powered."
I've yet to see a router that supports the USB broadband modems. You may have the wrong modem. Get one with the ethernet jack.
Hi, wondering if anyone could help me with a little problem i have in setting up my home network....
First off we already have a 2MB line, and one PC permanently on, with the other slaving its BB off it, we also have a router, and tonight are attempting to set up the home network...
What we need is a broadband modem that has an ethernet port on the back, so that it can plug into the router.... right?
My question is basically, how can we get all the PC's running thier Broadband from the router with the PC's able to be off at any point (ie we dont want a PC running on all the time) as i was under the impression that the modem would need to be USB powered... are there mains powered modems that i can get? and how do i put password etc in if its mains powered? just a little confused is all
Ta muchly for any help in advance
