A few years back, BT made quite a bit of news for claiming they owned a patent on hyperlinks and proceeded to sue some ISPs for daring to allow hyperlinks to happen without, you know, paying BT their tithe. Well, it appears that, once again, BT is a bit behind the ball. While (we hope) they're not talking about patenting anything, it appears that the folks at BT have just discovered that routers can help you use more than one computer on a single internet connection. Cisco must be thrilled. According to the announcement: "The frustration, up until now, has been that only one could ever be used at any one time - This is set to change." I'd guess that frustration was limited to clueless BT employees who couldn't be bothered to go down to the local electronics store (or, well, call up a website) and see the stacks and stacks of routers. Next thing you know, they'll tell us about this amazing "magic" wireless technology that lets you connect more than one computer without wires!
