Hi Elaine,

I use a Linksys.

You know you don't need one for just two computers, but you do need a
special cable that is different from what you use with the routers. I can't
remember what they call it at the moment.

If you get a router, don't mix this one up with the other cables used with
the router.

The router is sort of a switcher, which directs data to the computer you
want info from, and not the ones you don't.

I would try to get this going without the router.

  I am still getting problems with networking these 2 computers,  So I have
decided to get a router but before I go out and buy one I thought I would
ask if any one can tell me how they work and what makes are there.

  I on cable connected to PC by USB.
