    Default 2 computers using same adsl, not networked

    Can two computers use the same adsl account at the same time in different parts of the house, connected to two phone sockets on the same line?

    Thx

    I dont think so, its most probably the same as dialup, if u connect while youre connected, one will get cut off.

    And if 2 do manage to get on and stay on, you maybe charged extra for it.

    And if u only have 1 phoneline but 2 sockets, i doubt 2 will get on at the same time.

    I agree with Speedy Gonzales here, you will be lucky if it works!

    NO! You cannot! I tried this with an ADSL router and modem and the modem wouldnt work. As soon as the Router was disconnected, the modem was fine
