i phoned up MS tech suport to ask them a question that know one seems to ask.
most new broadband customers have USB modems , so what do you do?
after loads of being passed about you seem to have a few choices.

1)use your PC as a router (great if you have your PC in your cinema room).

2)buy a 30 metre RJ45 cable(to go from one end the house to the other).

3)buy a new ADSL modem with a ethernet conecter.

what do you guys think?

I use option 3, the advantage being you are totally independant of your PC.

I use a router with a the US Robotics cable modem use my games PC, work PC, PS2 for online games and currently have my Xbox networked for EvoX options and will use it for XboxLive.

Buy a router with ADSL modem installed. The Netgear (FR318??) is at DSL-Warehouse for £109. Purfect
