      Multiplayer Lan games

      Hi guys,
      I have a question about playing multiplayer games on a LAN using the $ky router, is it safe to play games with 3 - 4 PC's with the Router connected to the Web, or better still, would it hurt to take out the phone lead to the back of the router, so we have no Internet access at all etc, we have tried this and the router still works ok on the LAN games, and Wireless works great if we stream music to laptops anywhere in the House from the main PC using Winamp etc which is next to the Router etc, then, when we want the Web, we just connect the phone lead to the back of the Router and it fires up ok with Web access, could this practice damage the Router? the reason, it's nice to know there will be no hackers, no spyware, or trojans threatening network PC's while we play on the LAN what are you thoughts on this ?
      Paul

      Yes, assuming that your games aren't trojans, it's as safe as not playing games whilst the router is connected.
