hey guys,

is it possible to have 2 modems on one phone line? I need a connection in the basement.. the main modem is upstairs. Wireless doesn't have a good signal there ... Does anyone know? Maybe somebody can point me to a How-To.. I have an extra modem.. I was thinking just hooking it up in the basement..

Thanks in advance

DSL modem or Analog? With DSL forget it, analog will work if you make sure that only one is active at a atime.

Couldn't you just run both lines through a router?

If you've got the phone line running down stairs already, you could also use the phone line as a network cable with little trouble (it wouldn't be fast, but it'd be faster than wireless)
