How's it going?<BR><BR>Are you doing this mostly to share files/Internet/printers, or are you running a gaming system?<BR><BR>I mostly want one for the former.<BR><BR>Hmm.. phone jacks. The one computer isn't anywhere near one. What was the total price on this thing?
$45 per PC. I got roughly 10MBS between the two computers. More than fast enough I would think for gaming. Although, I use it mostly to share the internet connection around the house as well as move files back and forth across computers.<BR><BR>Took about an hour to get everything up and running. I called their tech support before purchasing the item and they were very helpful. Unusual in this day and age.<BR><BR>They offer PCI cards for $29.95 but I wanted the flexibity to just plug these jacks into rarely used computers at a whim.<BR><BR>I've been very impressed so far for the money and the time.
Not bad!<BR><BR>Just need software for a firewall, I'd guess.<BR><BR>Currently, I'm running Black Ice, but now that I have XP Pro, it has a firewall built in. Seems perfect for this setup.<BR><BR>I mostly want it to share the Internet... I gave my one computer to my daughter so she can play her games on it, and she likes to go to nickjr.com and all. Plus, I know she and her games won't go mucking with my files.<BR><BR>Ah well... still may wait till it's cool enough to run the wire through the house. The only thing that'll suck is if I ever decide to move the downstairs computer.
