Anyone know about networking, please give me some advice!
I'm running virgin broadband through a modem connected from the set top box to my PC, my PC has now bittten the dust & I need to network my new PC + 2 more PCs + 2 Xbox 360s.
In my old PC I had the broadband connected through a usb adapter & 4 network cards going to the other 2 PCs + 2 XBoxs, I know this is probably a crazy way to have done it but I didn't know how else.
Bottom line is I now have all the wired connections ready to reconnect, but my new PC only has 1 ethernet connection & I'm totally confused about the router/ethernet switch/hub idea.
Anyone help me out here, basically I just want the cheapest way of connecting the 3 PCS + 2 XBoxs up.
