    Alrighty then Jag, router it is. I don't understand the RJ-45 and RJ-11 type answers, could you elaborate on what those numbers and letters mean? Is there anyway I could get the router to work without having to "trick" anything with just the Mandrake, XP, and Win2k machines? (I've looked at your setup for your network, but we don't have any laptops lying around) Setup: I'll have the router in my room for my computer and my console. The Win2k computer will be plugged into the router and we'll most likely have the XP computer ICSing with the Win2k machine unless it's just loads easier to have the XP comp plugged with the router as well.

    In Laymans terms, RJ-45 is for network cards, and RJ-11 looks more like a telephone cable.

    There is not much "trickery" involved, most routers come with setup instructions, it will be LOADS easier to have have all of the PC's plugged into the router directly.
