I found this "Westell VersaLink model 327W" from a few years ago. on the back it has 4 ethernet cable plug in spots. one power source and one dsl phone plug in spot. I'm thinking this is a modem/router combo. I don't need the dsl line since my Internet is through cable. I do have a few ethernet cables as well as a couple other plugs with a weird plug in thingy, the one end can plug into the back of my "Webstar" modem (got from my cable company) and the other end is a normal usb connector.
My good computer is a Dell Dimension E520 OS Vista Home Premium.
The other computer is a a Custom Built computer with OS Windows XP Home Edition svc pk 3 I think. I'm currently running a check disk on it, so at this moment I'm unable to go into the System to verify. I know its XP Home and I'm pretty sure it said service pack 3.
I think this is all I need to set up a Home Network that is if my Westell modem/router is compatible. I don't know I'm a bit lost and hope you forgive me for my Ignorance in the matter. Any help will Definately be Appreciated.
