What is needed to access internet for tc 1100? Can I hook up to my Dsl line used for my PC? Thanks.

You could use the DSL but you have to run the eithernet cable from the DSL to the tablet. You could also set up a router on the DSL modem and then just connect to the internet using the built in wireless.

Thanks, TabletRon. Is there a specific type or brand of router I should get?

You may not need a router. Westell DSL modems are also routers. So all you need is a switch (http://cgi.ebay.com/STARTECH-5-PORT-10-100-ETHERNET-SWITCH-DS5107-/310235159373?cmd=ViewItem&pt=COMP_EN_Hubs&hash=item483b74db4d)and some more cables. Otherwise any wireless (http://cgi.ebay.com/Dynex-54Mbps-802-11g-Wireless-LAN-Firewall-4Port-Router-/400134690815?cmd=ViewItem&pt=COMP_EN_Routers&hash=item5d29e2d7ff)or wired (http://cgi.ebay.com/Dynex-4-Port-Network-Ethernet-Broadband-Router-DX-E402-/220623792638?cmd=ViewItem&pt=COMP_EN_Routers&hash=item335e33e9fe)router will do. Just get the cheapest one you can find. Be aware that connecting a router to a DSL modem is a little complicated. You have to put the modem in bridge mode and enter your login info into the router. Just google your modem and you'll see exactly how to do it.

Thanks, mdavej. I do have Westell. So I will purchase an inexpensive switch and follow instructions from Google.
