Ok I need help setting up a home network. I want to set up 5 computers and 2 printers using RJ-45 wire. No, i don't want wireless.

Three of the 5 computers are running Windows 2000. One is running Windows XP Prof and 1 Windows 95.

I have a Bellsouth DSL modem ''Stingray'' modem USB. I will like to share the Internet connection with all computers as well as the printers.

What do I need?

Thanks - John

Well first things first. You will need to get a router. This will take the your main connections and "split" it into othe ports for other computers/printers to use. You will need a ethernet network cards in the computers. As for the printers, you can either connect them to a computer or have them on the network directly but they need to have a network adapter.

This was real quick but i hope it gets you started. Any questions please reply.
