theoretically no....because the router will be translating all internal ip addresses into the public ip from telewest...i know that it sound's like a bad idea...but i would call telewest to be sure...because each ISP has different rules...and if some day..you need one of their techs in your house...and you forget to break down the network...you could get charged alot more than if you just call them before hand

Is this for your personal use or a business? I don't know anything about telewest, but, If you pay for a service and do not exceed the limits of that service. By using more bandwidth than you are paying for. Then it should not matter how many computers you have connected.

It might be a good idea to ask them. But I probably wouldn't.

Most ISPs, which would include Telewest, really don't care HOW you connect to them as long as you connect to them, and most ISPs also don't specifically disallow connection sharing (for home users anyway) BUT won't help you in that area.

You need a wireless DSL router (NOT "ADSL" as that's for BT lines) and some wireless cards. Plus your profile says you're on Windows 95, this OS may need some adjustments to get it to talk to the router.

Oh well in that case just plug your XP into the router when you get it and it'll talk to it automatically.
