How many ports should a router have if i want to hook up two computers to DSL? I also have this problem when im on the internet and I click links sometimes the links dont work the first time or it takes along time for them to load up. I usually have to keep clicking and clicking them then they will work. All replies would be appreciated.

Most routers come with four ports standard and one can be used as an uplink port if you want to add another hub or switch later. You sound like another click happy person like I have at the office. You only have to click once on Internet links.....watch the spinning globe and the progress bar if you have IE. It might just be your ISP's DNS server taking forever to resolve the name to an IP address. Also check your IP configuration for you network card to ensure there aren't any un-needed protocols installed. You should only need TCP/IP.

I think i did. You would only need <font size = "6" color = "Blue">3</font> ports, but the smallest number of ports you can get is <font size = "6" color = "Red">4</font>

thanx for the help.

Rockn---Most routers come with four ports standard and one can be used as an uplink port if you want to add another hub or switch later.

You Actually didn't answer the question you simply stated that most routers come with four ports. I just wanted to let you know.
Thanks for the help though.
