    who told you that ? what did they say exactly ? it doesn't really make sense....


    if it works, it works...

    as for security, if all the computers are in the same household....you don't really need to worry very much....i wouldn't have thought so anyway...

    that made no sense what-so-ever, ViViD. Please try to make some sense and proof read what you do mate, and perhaps add some details about your hardware etc :)

    The only thing I can think of is that he's referring to using NAT.
    That way, all the PC's on his network are hidden behind the PC or router that handles the NAT, and only that one device is seen on the internet.

    That's just a guess tho.
