      2 computers 2 routers?

      We have 2 computers both used for gaming.At present both are 64 bit vista.I have yet to find a good wireless adaptor for 64 bit vista. Can I run 2 routers one for each computer off my sky broadband account.Both computers hard wired seems the way to go for my particular needs.

      Re: 2 computers 2 routers?

      You can only connect 1 router to a single ADSL line so you would either need to acquire something like this...

      Wireless Gaming Adapter - DWL-G820 Wireless Gaming Adapter by D-Link

      or hard wire each pc back to the Sky router.

      Generally I've found if your using pc's mainly for gaming then you'll be better off hard wiring or using something like his which is what I use..

      eConnect HomePlug - Suppliers of HomePlug 85Mbps Turbo and AV200 HomePlug Powerline Networking Adaptors

      Fit one Homeplug device by the router and one by each pc and use your mains circuit as a network.
