I have an old PC with Windows 95 on it, which was recently replaced with a new Dell with Windows XP. I have also recently upgraded to DSL, and would like to put the old pc back to work. I was told that if I wanted both pc's to be able to surf the net, that I would need a router, and that it would have to be connected to the older pc because the older pc would not have the connections needed to receive the signal from the router. If that is correct, my question is this, would both pc's need to be connected to the phone line to surf the net with the router installed? I'm sorry if this is a dumb question, but this is all new to me.
