share connection from one way internal card
mango May-14-01 03:09 AM
I have Adelphia Powerlink one way service and installed in my PC is a SB1100 Internal card. I would like to share the connection with my PC laptop in another room. Can anyone instruct me on how to do this. I'm confused because of the cable download(internal card) and modem upload (3com internal modem). I'm quite new to this cable tech stuff. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I donít know of a software or hardware solution that can be used to share an internal, one-way cable MODEM. Windows 9x/Me ICS and SyGate (http://duxcw.com/digest/Reviews/Network/sygate/sygate.htm) will not work. My cable company replaced its internal surfboard cable MODEMs with external Surfboard SB2100D cable MODEMs (http://duxcw.com/digest/Reviews/Modems/cable/sb2100D.htm) over a year ago, which are capable of both one-way and two-way operation, in anticipation of switching the cable infrastructure to two-way service. It has a built-in telephone MODEM and interfaces to a computer with network adapter. It can be shared with ICS, SyGate, and a router (I have tested all three and other products). Perhaps your cable company is planning the same sort of thing. I would call them and see if you can get the Internal MODEM swapped-out. I am still running one-way, but they are presently installing fiber optic cables in town to upgrade the infrastructure to two-way service. Larry
