Postby uawleeza » Fri Nov 23, 2012 2:38 am

How do i connect my computer to my other computers internet? I am thinking of getting a Studio XPS 8000 gaming computer, and i was wondering if i can connect that to my other computers internet without buying anything extra. My other computer is connected to a wired router. The router has an antennae. Thanks in advance.

From your description, you should have no problems. A wired router normally has connections for 4 or more computers connected through normal RJ-45 Cat-5 or Cat-6 Ethernet cabling. You also mention an antenna on the router, so you should be able to connect without a cable, through WiFi connection, if your provider did not lock down the WiFi connection.
