    Me and my father would like to set up a remote network on our computers so that we can share resources. I have high speed but he still had dial up. His modem is 56k. If we set up the network will he be able to high speed as well or will he need to buy an ethernet/combo card???

    I don't understand what you are trying to do? Are you trying to share an internet connection? If so, how far are you apart? And yes, if you want to connect at DSL speeds, a modem will NOT work..

    If you just want to share files, you can set up an FTP server using IIS... and share your whole hard drive... just remember to password it!
