Oh, and one other thing, make sure that both PCs are set to say they communicate with the internet directly. Do not have either set saying 'other computers may access the internet via this one' - or however microsoft word it.

If the router has multiple ethernet ports you do not need a switch - the router can also act as the hub. I have got two pc's connected to my CYTA broadband siemens router directly and they work OK without any need for a switch. I also have a wireless print server on the network which both PC's use to print from - so the one router is providing me with two PC's and a printer - all of which co-exist and communicate quite happily, with only the router amongst them.

Hi, I'm no expert, but, I think you need to connect your P.C's

via a 'switch'. We have a D LINK model connecting a lap top

and P.C. We can share documents etc as well as the internet

connection.

Little box you plug in, connect via USB, configure, and off you

go. Good luck.

What exactly do you mean by:

"i have connected two desktop PC`s to my router Speedtouch 585v6 now both pcs are running so slow and even freezing frequently"

If it is the computers themselves, then most probably you have installed something that makes them run slow/got yourself a virus. If it is the internet you are talking about, then you should check your settings.

Are they both set up to get their IP address from the router? They should both have different IP addresses. To easily see what is going on go to the router http://192.168.0.254, and under home network you should see devices. Check that the two PCs have different IP addresses. Also, if on Windows XP, in My network places, select HIDE icons for UPnP devices (unless they are already hidden of course!!)
