have a stable connection on EQ2.

Yes. as long as your broadband connection supports the needed
throughput, which means you can connect a lot of computers running EQ
on a cable modem, you will have no problem. I've had 5 on a DSL line
running EQ1 so you should have no problem.

Remember that you can connect a modem on a phone line at 56k and run
EQ and EQ2 and your cable connection is at least 1.5m so that's a lot
of regular modems in speed :-)

Easy. I do it all the time. EQ really doesn't take all that much band width.
You could do 10 computers easy.

Some routers have only four ports. You'd have to get one with at least
five, obviously.

Just get an 8 port hub and connect that to the router. Hubs are cheap.

True, but for the trafic of only 5 computers? That's nothing.
