    Sorry, posted in the wrong section. Please move if necessary.

    We don't have any high speed internet around here yet. Right now, the wife and I are running a home network through my computer.

    I recently contacted our local computer guru about the possibility of using a router, where we could both be online at the same time, just like now, but without the need of both computers running to achieve internet access.

    He didn't advise it, saying he didn't think today's routers were designed for dial-up access but for DSL or Broadband which is always on. At the time, I didn't think to ask him why or question him, but now thinking about it, it doesn't make sense to me. Is he right, or can a router be set up to connect both of us to the Internet independent of the other's computer?
