How to use internet on two computer by single USB modem?



You can be able to connect to computers by using one modem.

The above can be done by connecting to the router in two different ways.

1. Wireless – This will only work if you have a computer that is wireless enabled.

2. Ethernet – Physically connecting using a cable

One computer can be connected via the USB port while the other can be via Ethernet. They both come with the modem though you may need to purchase a longer Ethernet cable. The majority of Ethernet cables are blue in color.


Connect the first computer through a USB port. This may install automatically or require an installation CD whereby you will need to provide your user name and password.

You can then plug in the second computer via Ethernet. This may get connected right away or may still require you to use the installation CD whereby you will choose to connect via Ethernet.


You can choose to connect the computers directly. This is achieved by use of a crossover cable.

You can also purchase a bridged USB cable.

Hope this will help

When using USB wimax modem, this will give Internet connection up to a single computer only. Not unless this USB wimax modem is wireless capable.

There is a way to connect 2 computers at the same time using USB wimax modem but computer A should share connection to Computer B via either coax cord of Ethernet cable. This is computer to computer networking but the Internet speed will slow down because this use and share Internet bandwidth at the same time.

By setting up this type of connection, often called computer-to-computer networking is simple but rarely used by Internet user.
