I am very new to networking computers and was wondering if you could connect an old computer running Windows NT to the Internet via DSL. I already have three computers connected to the network that run XP and they work just by plugging in the cable. Any information on how to do this or what is needed would be great. Thanks in advance.

The critical component is the network card in the PC (this has the ethernet port on it) as this requires a driver for Windows to recognise it. The router/modem into which you plug the network card does not need a driver. So the bottom line is, if Windows NT can recognise that a network card is present and it's listed as such in Device Manager, you should only need to plug that PC into your router to get a connection, just as you do with Windows XP.
