    You need a roll over cable between the router console port and the serial adapter on your pc.

    Simply run adaware, spybot, ZoneAlarm, HijackThis, AVG, update windows daily, have a router, don't open e-mail, turn off action scripting, don't use P2P networks, don't violate EULAs, and wear a condom to get Windows secured.

    People say Linux is alot of work!

    no, just one rollover somewhere in the mix. I'd connect the rolloever with the db-9 connector up in your room, and then a straight-through from the wall into the console port on the router.
