    I've recently got the internet at home.

    Im wanting to share the conection with a PC and a PS2. Anyone got any suggestions as to the best bits of kit you can suggest.

    If cheap enough may also opt for the wireless option if I can get it to work.

    Anyone done this or know anyone who has who can make some suggestions cause im flying a little bit blind.

    Hi,
    It all depends on where all the equipment is. Is your telephone line next to your PC or PS2. PS2 can plug into a router via a cable but not wirelessly (I may be proved wrong on that!) Pc can connect wirelessly of course, adapters are around £25 from PC world. Wireless router is around £50 pounds. You cannot connect PS2 any other way than through a router. Routers are quite easy to set up, I always use Linksys as they have a simple wizard. You will need to get a network setup disc for PS2 and configure your settings. PM me if you need any further help. I do this sort of stuff for a living. Honest!:D
