Can a router connect two computers with a network cable?

Asked by: Michael Scott 230 views Computer October 5, 2018

There was only one computer and one router in the house. I just bought a new one in these days. Can two computers connect to the router with a network cable, or a network cable to the router (with computer), and then directly Another computer, OK? How to get it

    It is certainly possible to connect two computers to one router, but one of the network cables may have to be long, or even wear a wall. Generally, the home router has 4 LAN ports and can carry up to 4 devices.

    Most routers have two to three LAN interfaces that can connect to two computers

    Of course. Today’s routers basically have a LAN port.

    Requires two network cables to connect to the router separately

    If both are wired, both computers need a network cable to connect to the router,

    This can be connected, and the network cable is connected to the computer from the socket of the router.

    The router must be connected to a separate network cable. The two computers should be plugged into a separate LAN port. The new computer only needs to purchase the network cable. Plug in the router.

    The router can connect multiple devices, but multiple devices cannot connect to the router with one network cable. If there is no multiple network ports on the router, buy a wireless network card for wireless networking
