    there are 2 lan ports on the mobo, i am just wondering is it possible to plug one more computer to my PC through the extra lan port, so the other computer will be able to online as well?

    currently i have a router to connect 2 computers altogether. i wanna throw away my router and just plug the other computer directly to my pc and both computer can online, is it possible?

    if so, will it slow down my computer?
    can you direct me to a guide how to set it up? do i need to get a special type of cable to do that?

    any help would be appreciated, thanks

    yes u can just plug another comp to your other lan and get rid of the roughter but u lose the built in firewall of the roughter. If you decide to do that you will need a Crossover cable instead of the regular cat5 cable. Its basically the same but the wires are crossed to simulate like its going from your comp to a roughter and then out to another comp. Hope that helps :toast:
