I'd think that all you need is an internet connection, a modem, a router with at least five output ports, and at least five ethernet cables to connect from router to computers.

You would need one wireless modem, and a network card for each computer. The computers just need to be in range of the modem for the internet to work. You of course need to be running ethernet through the router. I suggest you make a WEP password over the network, this makes it so people in their cars, other stores, and around your cafe cant access the network connection unless they ask you for your password.

hi, as long as you have the basic computer knowledge I do believe you can set up an internet cafe with the help of few people. But putting up an internet cafe you must have to make sure you have a good capital and invest wisely on what kind of brand to purchase considering the quality

To setup an internet cafe you must have more than one personal computer (PC) to used for internet business if your planning that too. anyway all you need to have is you some have an ISP (internet Service Provider) and a router for the connection and also if you an cafe system for tracking of the internet usage of your costumers you can have one. either you purchase it or have a free copy of it.
