Most likely you won't be able to use 2 dsl modems on one line. I tried this one time with my dsl when I wanted to have a computer upstairs and a computer downstairs connected to the same dsl connection. Only one modem was able to be connected at the same time. I ended up getting a wireless router and a couple pci wireless adapters for the computers and I was good to go.

Default Re: internet questions

our internet service provider is att idk if they'll let us have more than one modem, we have wireless already set up in our house but its in another room. i could just move the modem and router to my room and plug them in to the phone jack there, rite? but basically, to get ethernet hooked up in my room i would either have to move the router and modem, or get a super long ethernet cable plug it into the modem we have and thread it through the walls and stuff???

I"M SO CONFUSED

edit: plz help (rep for people that do)

If you have wireless in your house, why don't you just get one of those receivers? The things with the antanneas that you put into your PCI Express Slot.
Just get one of those and hook up to your wireless network.

You need a filter for the phone and the internet.
They are bothh through the same line, but the internet is using the high frequencies annd the voice is using lower ones. They have been known to interfere.

I say go to newegg right now and buy the router for $15. its the shell shocker.
And then you can buy a decent receiver for $30-40.

It's a netgear.
