Re: [TWC] Best way to connect TWC RR Internet to two computers?

What specific type make and model router do I need? And are we talking simple set up, in from one ethernet cable and out by two ethernet cables?

Any current consumer grade router (look at DLink, Linksys, Netgear, etc) will work fine for your needs.

If you don't want to do any more advanced setup, it's as easy as one ethernet into the WAN port from the modem and 2 ethernet cables out of the LAN ports. No further setup required.

Yep, almost any modern router will work. Did a quick search of places like OfficeMax, Office depot walmart to check out pricing. Looks like $40 can get you basic wireless router. For some reason didn't see any wired only routers. Think I saw one wired and walmart for $30 You can just turn off radio in wireless if not needed.
