One other quick question....with two things sharing the same line (for want of a better description) would there be a noticable deteriation of "speed" from the one modem / router ?
I have the Linksys WRT54G router, and it usually has response times of <1ms (less than one millisecond), so you really shouldn't get any latency problems. As for bandwidth, it wont effect that at all.
I have two computers and an Xbox 360 upstairs, connected to the router (which is downstairs) by a long Ethernet cable (simply because I don't want to play games wirelessly). There's a computer downstairs which connects to the router, and two laptops which connect wireless. The router then connects to the modem with an Ethernet cable, and whoosh, I'm online.
