More about : connect computers modem WyomingKnott February 5, 2013 12:18:32 PM If it's an Internet modem, with its output being a network connection, you buy a small Ethernet switch or hub.

What kind of modem? And why is this in the Video sub-forum? m 0 l hang-the-9 February 5, 2013 5:47:35 PM You would probably need to buy a router, connect the router to the modem, and the computers to the router.
