    Guys,
    I'm sure there is, but does anyone know if you can buy an ADSL modem which you can connect up to 3 devices (ie PC, PS2 & Xbox)?? If so what is a good choice...

    Thanks

    Thanks mate, is there a PCI version of a router with built in modem you would recommend rather than a wireless?? The desk is kind of cramped for space...

    I agree, just get a combined modem/router, type in your connection details, plug in your network connection, and you're done! Currently running modem/router into Xbox, and my PC, and then the PC downstairs, laptop, and Pocket PC on wireless. No hassle whatsoever.

    SeaneyC, thanks for above. Is there any loss in connection speed using a wireless connection?? Also what one have you bought as I need one to connect a PC, Xbox & PS2.

    In hindsight I think an external one is better anyway as there will be so few PCI slots left. The graphics card alone takes up two of the slots.
