It's true that I did not like it but I did listen and I put the other
modem in place but I no sooner set it up to connect with my server than
I'm down to learning how to put a router? in between the #1 & #2
computers and then connecting it to the ethernet connection on the
Modem/Router or I'll need to purchase a Wireless card to connect the #1
computer to the 2Wire. I have looked on ebay and it looks like I can
pick up a PCI Wireless 802.11g for less than 20 dollars and I'll likely
go that way because I just have no idea how to put a four port into the
system and set it up.
So thank you to each and everyone of you. I apologize for being such a
problem. I'll try to research this 4 port deal but if I fail to learn
that I'll likeky go with the wireless pci card.
