    Alot of the cheaper routers bomb out from time to time and are very annoying, same with the adapters, i have a belkin adapter which is about average, does go sometimes though.


    I also had that router untill i got a live box, probably the most reliable and easy to use router out there, worth the extra money if you have it.

    [quote:9b6d643c0c=\"neath_jmj\"]Right thanks guys bit confused here now lol

    The mother's laptop which connects to the interent has wired adsl internet[/quote:9b6d643c0c]

    Hi Neath,
    in order to help we still need more information about the laptops

    For instance the Mothers Laptop

    Does the Phone line plug into the Laptop direct or does it plug in via an external modem?
    If so we need to know if it is plugged in via USB of RJ45 ( network cable )

    We also need to know if Mothers Laptop is always going to be on and connected to the internet or specifically when your Girlfriend wants to access the internet

    the more expensive ( and best IMHO ) solution would be
    a wireless router
    http://www.aria.co.uk/ProductsList.a...bCat=NET-WGR54
    and adaptors
    http://www.aria.co.uk/ProductsList.a...bCat=NET-WGA54

    perhaps these

    Netgear W/less Network Starter Kit DG834GUK ADSL Modem Router + WG111GE USB2 Network Adaptor
    x 1
    Netgear 54Mbps W'less USB2.0 Adpter
    x1


    cheap but will work if
    The ADSL is direct into an internal modem, or is conected via an External Modem via USB ( or has USB option ) and/or it has a spare RJ45 socket on the Mothers Laptop
    then you can use a crossover RJ45 cable
    select length

    If Modem and has USB option but no cable
    http://www.aria.co.uk/ProductInfoComm.asp?ID=97[USB A to A Cable USB-1m[/url]
    USB A to B Cable 3 meters

    [url=http://www.aria.co.uk/ProductInfoComm.asp?ID=20581]USB A to B Cable 5 meters]/url]


    BUT to give you a better answer, as requested Please post
    MODEL OF BOTH LAPTOPS
    MODEL OF ANY EXTRAS , addon cards , external modems etc

    with information this we can do the research for you, without it we are BLIND and will debate over our assumptions, and just confuse the situation

    to reiterate
    Please post details about the equipment you are asking help for,
    without it we are BLIND nad will bump into each other

    PS anyone any feedback on the Netgear + USB I highlighted?

    Right thanks guys bit confused here now lol

    The mother's laptop which connects to the interent has wired adsl internet

    personally I'm wired
    BUT I don't have a laptop, so I don't see any point in wireless for myself

    but yaeah I see what you are saying
    I feel that this is Cable instead of ADSL , as I'm not certain many Laptops have built in ADSL modems, if any

    again, we need the spec of the Laptops, models and any current addon cards would help

    but I would say Wireless is the way forwad

    i dont understand why u need that program?!

    is that just for people who dont know how to use windows....

    Windows xp home can only do it to one other machine but pro can connection share to anybody on the network.

    if they are both wireless or can be connected via ethernet and one will be connected to the internet all the time, this is the simplest way of doing it till you get a permanent solution: http://www.analogx.com/CONTENTS/down...work/proxy.htm

    I used to use it to share my 56k connection in the days before adsl - worked a charm! But it doesnt beat a real router!

    Hmm,
    DSL via USB = Spare NIC?

    True, but how many laptops have built in xDSL or two NIC's

    and freedom is good

    Let us know laptop models, any extras, BB type etc


    NB cheap option needs both laptops on at the same time
    or wired router and cables

    more spec = > or < options

    Re:

    [quote:56fc1bb49d=\"Firerat\"]This would need one ( the Parents ) two have two NICs + Wires are messy
    Need to know if it is ADSL or Cable
    Then get the appropriate Wireless Router and a couple of Wireless Adaptors
    Then Both laptops are free to roam the house
    Actaully I think you can get ADSL/Cable Wireless routers, not sure off the top of my head[/quote:56fc1bb49d]

    It would only have to have one network card, which is would have if it has a built in adsl modem and the modem to connect to the phone line.


    Might not be the best way, but at under a pound its the cheapest
