:tazz: I have a Westell 2200 DSL Modem/Router, and I want to connect my DSL internet to my other computer. What type of cable do I need in order to do this? All the cables I have looked at look far too big to fit in the network plug on the back of my modem. HELP!?

do you have a ethernet jack on the 2nd PC? it would either be an onboard thing, or a separate card. in either case it can accept the larger RJ45 connector for networking.
if all you have is a modem, you will need to get an ethernet card. they are quite cheap these days, so it wont hurt much.
let us know if you need any help to install a card, we can talk you through it.
