How to setup a LAN (via phone line)??? Hi. I recently bought a laptop that comes with a standard 56K modem. I also have a main desktop computer which has a broadband cable connection (Comcast). Now I know alot about software based things, but I am totally clueless with it comes to hardware. Is it posible to connect my laptop to my main desktop computer using a regular phone cord? Or do I need a router or have to buy some other equitment? :uhh: Any help would be great thanks!
