Network Hubs and Telewest Broadband (Blueyonder)greenspun.com : LUSENET : Paler.com discussions : One Thread
If i get telewest broadband, can i route it through the network hub and allow 2 other computers to access the net, or does that cost more, i already have a 10mbps hub, any help would be appreciated thanks James Earp

I've had a question about this previously by email.
I'll be adding this to the broadband page, and possibly as a page on its own:
You can use Telewest cable modem in a home network (http://info.blueyonder.co.uk/faq.html#homenet).
There are many cable modem FAQs/HOW-TOs on the web, Google throws up a few (http://www.google.com/search?q=cable+modem+connection+sharing and http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=cable+modem+sharing) including Practically Networked (http://www.practicallynetworked.com/sharing/), Cable Modem Help (http://www.cablemodemhelp.com/lanconnect.htm), Cable-Modems.org (http://www.cable-modems.org/articles/internet_sharing/) and Speed Guide's cable modem sharing (http://www.speedguide.net/Cable_modems/cable_lans.shtml).
UK sites include one at Broadband Help (http://www.broadband- help.com/cm_networking.asp#8) and byUsers has a home networking section (http://www.by-users.co.uk/faqs/networking/index.htm). ZDNet covers routers, sharing and includes prices (http://www.zdnet.co.uk/news/specials/2001/06/homenetworking/howto1.html). Found on Google (http://www.google.com/search? hl=en&q=uk+cable+modem+networking). The ADSL networking guide at ISP Review may be appropriate (http://www.ispreview.co.uk/broadband/guide_install/xdsl03.shtml).
There is also the Cable Modem category (http://directory.google.com/Top/Computers/Data_Communications/Cable_M odem/), which uses the ODP's data.

I have added a section with activated versions of the links above to my UK broadband internet access page.
(added)It now has its own page: home networking.
