internet sharing & network disconnection
anime2k Jul-08-00 11:06 PM
I have a windows 98 computer as the host and a windows 95 computer as the client. whenever i try to use the proxy software to share internet connection, the network gets disconnected and won't work until i restart both computers. i have used 10 different proxy setups, but all do the same results. can anyone help me?

How are you connecting to the Internet? If you are using a network adapter to connect to a cable MODEM, DSL, etc., you need a second adapter for the network to the client. Larry

Physically remove the MODEM. Remove the MODEM software, etc. in Windows and all COM ports in System, Device Manager. Windows will detect the ones that are still there next time you boot. You may even have to go through 3Com’s elaborate procedure for removing all of the 3COM stuff (the procedure is on their web site). I've had to on occasion—one of the reasons I am not fond of USR MODEMs.. Remove ALL network components in Network—you need a clean slate—I didn’t say format the C: drive... Get a TCP/IP network going using http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/win98se/intro.htm, but do not install ICS. Reinstall your MODEM and make sure the Internet is working. The TCP/IP info for the Internet is entered in My Computer, Dial-Up networking, not in Network... Download SyGate (http://duxcw.com/digest/Reviews/Network/sygate/sygate.htm). It is the best one. With the network functional and the dial-up connected install SyGate on the computer with the MODEM (host). Install SyGate on the computer without the MODEM (client). Come back, OK? Larry
