    I can suggest to use netmeeting instead of Remote Desktop Connection. The reasons are;

    1)Already installed on your laptop.If you cannot find the icon type "conf" on start->Run

    2)There is a mechanism for accept reject incoming calls(some kind of security)

    3)You can share one of your desktop view only or with full control.

    4) If you prefer you can share only one application.

    I am sure you will receive answers for RDC also. You need RDC only when you want to run a program on other laptop without disturbing other users.

    You will absolutely not have to pay anything additional at all if you want to connect more than one computer to your Time Warner connection. Time Warner representatives may *tell* you that you need to pay extra, but this is just what they are trained to say so that they can extract more money from customers who don't know any better. This, at least, is what Earthlink representatives tell customers, and Earthlink is a Time Warner reseller in some areas, so the two may have similar policies. If someone tells you that you need to pay extra to use a router with your service or else it won't work, they are lying; whether you pay a router surcharge or not, your service will work fine with a router. You will not need a DSL modem for either computer. All you will need is a cable modem, which you presumably already have, and a way to connect more than one machine at once, such as a router. QUOTE Can I just buy a new Desktop Computer, hook it up to my outlet and it'll have internet service? /QUOTE If by, `outlet`, you mean your cable modem, then yes. To do that though, you would have to disconnect the currently connected computer, only allowing one computer to be connected at a time. That's why I suggest that you purchase a router so that you can have as many computers or other devices connected simultaneously as you want.

    You can't do it that way unless you already have the two computers connected to the same network.
