I have not seen an issue with burying cable, as long as it is entrenched
inside some kind of conduit. I personally use a flexible plastic (I think
it's PVC) conduit to run CAT5 cable between buildings fairly frequently, and
haven't seen any issues as of yet.

I am considering taking service with Roadrunner.

Were is a good place to find a modem for use with them and about what does
one cost.

What make and model do I want to look for?

If anyone has a good used one for sale let me know.

I'm wanting to connect two computers and be able to be on the internet at
the same time on both. The problem is one computer is in another building.
Can I run cable from the house (buried under the surface) to the other
building to connect that computer?

 It would probabley take 100 feet of cable, would this degrade the signal?

Can this be done with the one modem box?

What would be a good card for this hookup and about what do they cost each?

I've never messed with anything but dialup so any suggestions are welcome.
