    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.

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