Is it now possible to have the two PC's connected to each other throught the Router/modem to share files and for my children to play games against each other...I.E home network with 2 pc's talking to each other through the net gear modem/router? Both machines only have the one Lan input (I'm pretty sure)
Both running windows 7 (one 32bit and the other 64 bit)
I appreciate any help at all, thanks.
That is exactly what routers do. If both pcs are on the same "subnet" they should be able to see each other in network.
If you give us more info on what you are trying to do (what games, file sharing?, etc) we can give you more help
