Default 3 way computer network

sponsored links

Hi all, I want to set up a network comprising 3 computers with XP Pro on all of them. They will need to share 5 printers and have access to a ADSL broadband connection.

What it is the best way to connect them and be able to use the printers and ADSL connection.

What software do I need and what hardware is required?
Cost is not an issue but stability is.


I know a little bit about networking but would class myself as a novice.

best regards Lee

You are going to need a router, 4 port should be fine, except for the five printer shares, which you can take care of with ICS. If you need anymore help, just post back.
