Hi folks, I'm a bit new to this so please be gentle!!!... I'm thinking of going with ADSL broadband for my pc and xbox (no cable in my area), my problem is that the broadband wall socket will be downstairs and at the moment the pc and xbox are in a room upstairs therefore I need (I think) to run a cable from the wall socket up the stairs and into the room with the router feeding the pc and xbox (am I correct so far?) ...If yes, then how much cable can I use (and what type) before I start to get data drop-outs?... or is this not a problem? One other thing, if you all don't mind I'm also thinking of ugrading my pc, if I go for 1 of the nforce2 motherboards am I right in thinking that I can get online by just connecting a lead from the router to the 10/100 socket on the board or do I need some sort of modem aswell? That's my lot... Thanks in advance for the replies folks. Regards, Iain.
