I'm about to get a new computer for myself and naturally I want to be able to access the Internet. I know I have to get a wireless broadband router and a network adapter card. My question is will having both computers accessing the Internet at the same time slow down my connection badly? I want to be able to play games online without too much lag.

Any help would be appreciated =)

It all depends what the computers are doing online, and what type of connection you have.

If you have at least 2mbps, and you're gaming and the other person is surfing the web, I doubt you'll notice any sort of lag.

What will happen is that you'll share your internet connection. As lem.rar said it all depends on what internet activities both computers are doing at the same time. If one PC would go download, lets say, a whole lot of mp3s while the other is trying to play an online game and having a 512kbps internet connection would surely have some issues regarding lag in your online game.

You shouldn't notice any decrease in internet speed unless 1 computer is uploading, since usually you have much less upload bandwidth than download.
