u may have seen my other posts about a new pc well its up and running but he took it home and he wants to keep his old pc on the internet aswell as his new 1
he has virgiin media internet with a patch cable modem i bought him a switch so he could run the 1 cable and split it to 2 computers but only 1 computer is reciving internet is that coz his modem is just a modem and not a router ???
would this http://www.ebuyer.com/UK/product/116601
split his internet connection so he could run 2 computers off it ??
or would he have to contact virgin media for them so allow more ip addresses ???
although i thought a router allowed multiple connections through 1 ip ???
so should the switch i bought him work ?? or does he need a router with built in cable/DSL modem ?
