Hey everyone!

I have Time Warner Cable Internet and I just got a wireless router. I haven't hooked it up yet, but i am wondering... after I hook up the router and use 2 computers on it, will Time Warner Cable begin to charge me more? My gut instict is that they can't tell the difference between two or more systems on the same line. But i am not sure if a seperate IP is assigned or not. Any thoughts?

You only get one external IP. The router will assign internal IP addresses for all PCs on the LAN, so don't worry about it.

Exactly.

You will have 2 IPs for your home local area network, but the ISP only provides you with one, which is assigned to your router/outgoing connection (If i'm not mistaken).

So having multiple computers on your own LAN is perfectly fine.
