    I have two computers(HP & DIT). I want to use them both. When I unplug the cables from one computer to use on the other the "Local Area Connection" is disconnected. I have to use the Installation CD-ROM to reinstall the USB Drivers. I have plugged both computers into a KVM Switch but have the same problem. I would like to be able to use both computers without installing drivers when I change from one to the other.

    Do both PCs have an ethernet port?

    If yes, then get a router and plug both PCs to the router and the router to the modem. No drivers, and the KVM will never touvh your connection.
