I'd like for some advice on setting up a multiple computers to the home internet. Currently I have an emachine connected to the internet via cable. In the future I'd like to add another desktop computer (son) and two laptops (daughters) to access the internet at home. I don't believe I need to network these computers together, but hey what do I know. At this time, I don't know how many outputs I have on the cable modem (I'm away from home). Thanks in advance for any advice/guidance.

You need to check and find out if your cable modem is a combo device that is also a SOHO router.

If it is, is it capable of doing a wireless network?

If it's not a combo unit, your best bet will be to purchase a good SOHO router that is wireless capable.

OH, and you will need to network all your computers together if you wish to have them all access the internet.
