I have taken sify internet connection. They have provided dedicated line for this, but there is no modem. I want to access net on two PCs. There is however only one point they have provided with the line. I want to get it done with minimum investment. So guys please suggest how to access net on two PCs with one net connection. Each of the PC have one LAN card. The Sify guy suggested me that I can go for : i) A Router ( for 2k) which will manage the trafffic automatically ii) A hub (for .6 -.7k)for which one of the PC has to become proxy server I dont knw much about the technicalities involved. But still I hope there are many other ways of doing this job ( I hope better than above two ). Router is costly affair. Hub doesn't seem to be good in terms of performance coz it will overload one of the PCs.
