The main thing to do is make sure both computers have an Ethernet NIC and make sure your broadband provider has given you a modem with an Ethernet port (not USB). If both are true than all you need is the router and 2 patch cables (any length) if either of your PC's are missing an Ethernet port you will have to buy an ethernet NIC as well.
I'm in the same situation only i've been given a modem that has a USB port not Ethernet. Could anyone explain what happens in this situation and what would be needed in order to set this up.

Thanks very much.

Kerry_s, it would probably be best if you started your own thread. I'm sure someone will be along to give you a hand.

even though it appears you're having the same problem, please start a new thread. It's very difficult to keep two problems straight and who's working on what in a single thread. Thanks for your cooperation.

How about some details about your configuration and what machines you want to connect. Also, this ICS tutorial will help you start thinking about what you need.
