    Hi all.

    Yeah - I know I'm already on the 'net, but I'm trying to connect an old PC to the internet via my hub.

    IN my first picture, you can see the connectors on my hub, and on the second is the picture of the ports on my PC.

    Can someone suggest a means of connecting the two? By which ports, and by what sort of cable?

    Many thanks,

    Sparky

    Second that!

    Might be able to get a USB Network adapter - I do see USB ports...

    I'll give the USB option a try - could you give me a link to a cable which I would need?

    you will need a network card of some sort. i normaly use PCI becuse i have old cards laying around so i just put one in the system. a usb is simpler to install but if you have niether use the usb it will e eiser. plug it in your dsl router it should get an ip adress from dhcp on the router. if not put in a private class c adress like 192.128.1.3 and a dns server used by your isp they should have told you this in install or look it up on there site.

    Have you connected already?
    The router appears to have a USB port, which can be connected to the PC with a USB cable, and the ADSL line to the ISP. Please confirm this with the router model.
