I have dsl through ATT and want to configure a setup for two computers.
I was wondering what would work out best for me.
I could either get a router or use the main computer as a hub for the second. I use the main computer for gaming and the second is to keep my girl friend from bugging me while gaming. If I went with the later setup are there any disadvantages to my gaming bandwidth and/or cpu toll???

I would go with the router. A wireless router is unbeatable for setting up a home network. Now that spring is here, I can take the laptop to the backyard :)
