I have a laptop that is in pretty bad condition, but 70% of the time, it will function fine without shutting down. I want to go ahead have it share the internet connection with my current desktop. My plan was to just buy a cheap ethernet splitter and connect them all together. If I do that, does it reduce internet speed greatly? If it's to the point of unuseability, then it's not worth it, considering the laptop itself is kind of crappy. what do you think? any suggestions? btw, I dont use internet for online games or anything. mostly anandtech, other forums, and occasional youtube/facebook/myspace. also, is ethernet hub and splitter the same thing for my needs?
