    I have a computer connected to the internet via USB, it is a DSL connection.
    I don't have a Network Card on one computer and I want to connect two other computers to the same internet connection. The two other computers have both NIC and USB.How do I connect the three computers to the internet? what kind of router should I buy....
    note that the internet is provided using USB and not a network card.

    Get a router, wireless if it&#39;s more convenient. In fact just get a wireless one, it makes things easier.

    Connect the router to the modem. If your router does not have a USB port (for connection to the modem), then simply get converter.

    Connect the computers to the router, again wireless if you prefer not to run cables.

    A usb linksys wireless connection will cost 25 for B and about 50 for G. I use B as it transfers the information as fast as I can get it from the interweb anyway. So you do not need any physical lan connections, other than the router to modem.

    The router will do the rest of the work for you. It will set up the DHCP table and so forth, so all you need to do is plug in the usb devices and install them. They are powered by the port to no seperate power cable.

    That is the simplest and mose effective way of doing it. The router will also provide you with a hardware firewall and make your lan invisible to the interweb. Unless you choose to make it otherwise.
