    Hey man, am in the same boat as you: have 749 Reliance connection, but migrating to 1499 plan in 48 hrs, my setup: billion (1 port) modem + Netgear wg614 router. I'm also trying to login to 2 computers at the same time to double my bandwith, but have been unsuccessful so far. Can you please let me know how you were able to login to 2 computers?

    Your help will me much appreciated,
