I am using ADSL internet connection -Speedy100- with a NDS1060USB modem. My question is if I can connect another pc in parallel from the same port. Could it cause any problem? Would It be better to use speedy 200 or higher or use any other modem with one more port.? i would appreciatte your answer.

From the same port? This is a one-port ADSL 'modem' device? The preferred way to connect more than one PC to an ADSL (or other high-speed) internet connection is by way of a routing device. Some modems do provide multiple ports and perform as both the modem for the ADSL and the router for multiple PCs. But also typical is to purchase a home/small office router to expand that single port.

You may want to re-address this question to the Networking forum as it is probably more appropriate there.
