the internet in your household? We have two. A desktop and a laptop. My hubby controls the laptop even though it is mine.

I have 14 currently online at home. I know it sounds strange. I do distributed computing and they pc's need to be connected to the net. Most of them are stripped down pc's running bare minimun hardware needed to run. Robert http://rtsweb.homeip.net

Right now we have 5 computers connected to the internet. We have 1 server, 1 computer set up for recording music, 1 work computer, 1 personal computer, and 1 laptop. We run a computer repair business from our house so there are times when we have up to 9 computers on the network at a time.

I am connected to 3 desktops, I actually work off two at a time I have one in front of me and one set up off to the side of me so I can do two programs on the internet at a time. and my hubby has his own..we are on dsl and the one computer off to the side of me is actually using a wireless card in that but runs just as fast cause it is sitting right by the router and all.all 3 are networked together so we can all use the information from each others computers.

Wow, talk about sophisticated. A multi-tasker at heart, huh! I'm impressed. I think two at once would cause me too much distraction. You know, the ADD thing!! LOL

We have three right now but normally it's just two. Our brother has been staying with us and his is hooked up otherwise it would be mine and then the other computer that my sister and neice share. My sister isn't much of a computer person but she's been learning and starting to come around to it. I have to admit there are times I wish I had a lap top but this works for me.

Start a ;aptop jar and put all your change in it every day. you'll have that laptop before you know it. I got mine by using my small home business to get a loan through Dell. No mimimum payments and no interest when I got it. I have about 300 to go and it will be paid off. I just send what I can,when I can. I asked for the small business line when I called the 800 number for Dell.

Presently in my house theres only one computer linked to the internet connection that we have. But, we are planning to get another laptop and then shift to a faster connection. So, that both of them can be surfed smoothly and easily. now, i am using a dila-up connection its really annoying to use.

Now that we have a cable modem connection for the internet I am spoiled. I would hate top have to go back to dial-up. We have a wireless connection my hubby set up so we can both surf smoothly in separate rooms. It works great.

We also only have two computers a part of our network. A PC which is down stairs, and a laptop which is in the livingroom. Most of the time the laptop is being used, and the PC down stairs is running because it has all the extra hard drives mapped for sharing. The other day some home my IP address changed on my laptop and it would no longer connect to the PC downstairs, it took me about two hours to figure out what was finally wrong before I fixed it. Man, let me tell you, that was a pain in the butt.

I know what you mean, my hubby has to do the figuring out when things like that happen as I'l not real good at that yet. I susally try to stay out of his way as he'll be back and forth between the two until both are working right again.

right now, 5 but there usually are 4. I play on mine off and on all day. My son and his business partner work from home making internet sites and directories, and right now, the partner's younger brother is helping them develop a new site, so he is here as well. By the way, that is usually 3 pcs and 1 mac laptop, but today there is also a toshiba laptop.

We have two desktops which are permanently connected to the internet. My wife owns one and I own the other. However, sometimes my sons and daugher come to visit along with my grandchildren and they all have laptops and bring them with them. There could sometimes be up to nine computers connected at any one time. I don't really mind this until a couple of them start downloading music and films, then my internet cannection takes on a snails pace.

Sounds like a summer job goal to me, LOL! That's how my daughter always got the estra things she wanted. Work and save during the summer months until she had enough to get what she wanted and then she would cut back on her hours for some relaxation before the next school year started. Go for it! You can do it! Be sure to shop around for he best price. We got our laptop from Dell! I like it.

Well there's a lot of us, and since we put together our computer we have quite a few LOL We have four connected and occasionally we connect our laptops as well. At this moment one of the computers is not connected because it's my daughter's and she is not here, but when she comes back we'll connect it again.

Well, I only have one computer! But, if we ever get more than one computer we would have all of them hooked up so neither one of us would have any problems getting on the internet!

Three desktops and a laptop. My daughter and I each have one for our businesses, and the rest of the family share the third desktop. My other daughter has her laptop hooked in too. We have another computer for the kids to play on but it is not connected to the internet so that we can let them play unsupervised and not worry about what sites they might connect to. Last night we let the three year old play Poppit via the internet, I turned away for a couple of minutes and when I looked back she was on myspace!

We have two. My husband has one computer, I have the other one. We have Shaw Cable, but different ip addresses. He does not get on mine and I do not get on his. So it works out fine.
