I hope someone can help me with this and that I donít sound confusing trying to describe my problem. I know itís not possible having 2 DSL modems on 1 subscriber line, by splitting the line and having the 2 modems run individual subscriptions, at least this is what I have been told, so if this is wrong please correct me. What I want to know is can I split a line, have 2 modems running the same subscription? My reason for wanting to do this is that my modem is in my office studio at home, which must stay locked up when Iím not personally there due to equipment and data on my PCís in there. I have a separate entrance which I gave to a friend to stay in that lost his farm and everything in Zimbabwe, he was using a wireless connection to my modem, but because of the distance of the separate from my house there was constantly reception issues and also some other issues we thought was caused because it was a wireless connection where he needed to reset the modem. I have had cables laid to the separate, a network cable and a phone line, and although the reception issues is now in the past, it still happens that he need to reset the modem sometimes like when it maybe freeze up or something and I often leave the country for a month or more at a time. So Iím wondering if itís possible to put another modem on the phone line in the separate that runs the same or even a different subscription to the modem in my office so that when Iím unavailable and the modem needs to get a reset that he will be able to just reset the modem in the separate by him?
Then just one more thing, whets the best way to connect your PC to a DSL modem, like the fastest connection? With a network cable I see it says it runs at 100.0Mbps, is that the fastest and is that sufficient for a 8 or 10 mbps DSL line, or would I need to get a different cable or connection when I upgrade to a faster DSL service?
