24.95/mo for an extra PC!!! With Road Runner, once you
get the extra card and connect via a hub, aditional PCs
are no extra charge ($40/mo inclusive). Is this true
with TCI hookups?

What's the big deal? Run the cable interface into a hub. Put an ethernet card in each computer and connect them to the hub. Hub will cost $40 to $Many depending on how many ports and the speed of the hub. Cables run $5 - $50 depending on length. Ethernet cards for each box will run $20 - $100 (I strongly recommend going toward the high end here). Nwtworking is built into windows and mac - no real trouble there.

Plug & Play. If you can't do it yourself, a local VAR will undoubtedly be happy to do it for you, or check with a local computer club.

You then have one connection that can handle as many computers simultaneously as you are likely to be interested in using.
