Hi, all

Could you please tell me what's the difference between these two sentences. Actually, the part I'm interested in is if I should use the past participle or the present participle of the verb "to connect" after "a router".

1) I have a router connecting to my PC via a twisted pair cable.
2) I have a router connected to my PC via a twisted pair cable.

I tend to use the second one (connected) to describe what connects to what, but I've also heard people use the first one a lot. Which one seems to be more appropriate for you?

Thanks.

Sometimes you'll hear the first one, but the second one is more appropriate.

CalifJim, Yoong Liat thanks for your replies.

After all the comments, I think I just keep on using the second one.
