Ok, I know nothing about networking. Ok, I know a little but not much. Scenario: 1 PC 1 iMac/350 1 Printer (Epson Stylus Color 740, USB) 1 ADSL modem 1 Router Ok, So I want to share the internet connection, network the computers (to share files and play Starcraft) and share the printer. So I go out and buy I cheap router (not done yet), I don´t need anything fancy just something that works with both mac and pc and gets the job done. I´m a bit confused by networking cables. I understand there are two types, twisted pair and soem other sort. I think that you can connect two computers with a twisted pair cable without using a router or hub. Is that correct? I tried connecting the pc and the mac with the cable that goes between the modem and the network card but that didn´t work. I suppose it´s not twisted. So If I have a router can the cables going between the router and the comps be of any kind? Twisted or otherwise. How do I share the printer?
