Hi,I am using MTNL triband for Internet connectivity. I have two computers at home and would like both of them to be connected to Internet at the same time so that both, me and my brother can access Internet at the same time.For this I guess I have to set up a lan. Do I need to invest in a switch/hub or it is possible without additional hardware?(i.e. by using usb connection on one pc and ethernet RJ-45 connection on the other).Any help in this regard will be appreciated.Thanks.

connect modem to say ur PC thru USB port. get a cross cable and connect ur bro PC to ur PC using that. make ur PC as gateway for ur bro pc. no need of switch or hub.

Thanks for your reply. I guess that will work but the problem is my bro will need to boot my pc as well if he wants to access Internet. If there can be some other way so that only modem/router is kept ON it will be of really great help.Thanks again.

that would work if your modem is logging you to the mtnl network. that means you are using ethernet to connect to the modem. add a switch in between... :confused:
