    For your purposes, the difference is $10.  Sorry, silly questions get silly answers.  

    There is no difference for the purposes of adding a second PC to your broadband modem.  Just keep in mind, you will most likely need to get a Cable/DSL (broadband) router.

    It's basically the same difference between a cheap honda and a cheap toyota car - maybe one has slightly more comfortable seats, but they are both cars that will take you where you need to go if you know how to drive them.  Personally, if you're going to go mail order - I'd suggest ordering from - I THINK they ship to canada and they are much cheaper - all you need is a basic network card.

    Very funny :-)

    Just wanted to make sure the second didn't have something I did need, no point in spending more than one has too.
