here is my problem:
i will have a single internet connection into my home. the connection is a straight lan / ethernet cable in. i will connect that to a router. the problem is: i gotta hook up five pcs, and the router has only four ports!
obviously, i'm gonna need something extra.
if this was you, how would u go about solving this?
i thought of adding a second networking device to one of the pcs. then connect that to a hub and connect that to the last pc. but i'm not sure how complicated this is going to be as far as configuring the ip address on that final pc. (i'm not exactlty a networking genius ). is there any easier (cheaper?) way!?
