      Two homes and one connection.

      Hi, new here and thought you'd be the ideal guys/girls to ask about this..

      I am in the situation where I have a Mac and a PC + Sky broadband with a V2 Netgear router. I do have another modem/router spare, but I was just wondering if it was possible for me to connect my Mac, which is in a different building, to my internet connection running through my Sky Netgear router at home just by using a separate modem or router with my Mac. Am I thinking about this the right way? Can it be done?
      Thanks for your time, grateful for any advice given.

      Only if the different building is close enough to pick up the wireless signal from the V2 router or close enough to run an ethernet cable to connect the other router to as a hub.

      So there is no way of a remote connection of some sort?

      There are remote desktop access programs available, but you would still need to access the home pc via its router for which you would need either a wireless or wired connection to it or a seperate internet account at the second property.
