    Okay, I'm new to networking and the main reason I want a router is to be able to go online with my PS2 while still having internet access with my one computer. btw, i have a cable connection.
    I decided to go with a simpler wired router but I have a couple of questions:

    1) is this a good router for my needs: http://tinyurl.com/3s5fy

    2) do i need a crossover cable for modem to router? and from there to PC and PS2?

    thanks for the help.

    You really have to be a bit more patient, not that many people read the forums each hour. :)

    The router you indicate should work fine, and you use straight cables for all the connections, no crossover cables required.
