[wdvltalk-social] broadband access

Thanks for responding.

Our problem is we can't use wireless.   We are uncertain about 
having distribution through the mains wiring;   and the points of 
connection [inbound and computer positions] are too far apart to 
think that ethernet wires are a good option.   And that is apart 
from the difficulty of fixing the wiring round, and how it would 
look and the hazards it might cause.

I am sure it is possible to have each computer pick up via its 
own modem [I already have them - SmartAX 882 - due to failed 
attempts!], but the question is what problems not having a common 
router might cause - if any.

Each machine must be separately identified anyway, and so though 
all signals would come to both machines they should be filtered 
successfully.   On the other hand would signals out, if leaving 
at the same time risk being confused, or are the packets secure 
from that - since packets wander round by the billion it seems 
unlikely to cause a problem?

I wonder if anyone actually knows, or if it is safe to
