Internet sharing on USB network with USB ADSL modem
JKDenmon May-17-01 04:02 PM
I have just installed a USB based network using a Belkin device. The network allows me to share My USB CD writer and printers, files, etc. I don't, howeve, know how (or if I can) share my USB ADSL modem. I've been told I can't, but I suspect there is a way that I can. Anyone have any advice?

What Belkin device do you have installed? Do you see a Belkin and USB ADSL network adapters in Start, Settings, Control Panel, Network? Larry

The Belkin device is a F5U104 USB Direct Connect.
I see a Belkin Direct Connect Network Adapter and Alcatel Speed Touch USD ADSL PPPoA (NDISWAN Bindings). Nothing that Says USB network Adapter specifically, though it is the same icon and in the same area as the adapters.

In that case, Windows ICS (http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/win98se/intro.htm) or SyGate (http://duxcw.com/digest/Reviews/Network/sygate/sygate.htm), which is better, might work. If they do, please let me know. Larry

I have done an install of DSL with the Alcatel USB modem. The problem in trying to share this connection is it not a PPPOE connection, this modem work almost like a standard modem in that one of the computers, usually the one the USB modem is hooked to, must dial a connection. The modem uses dial up networking even though the number is from what Iíve seen only 2 digits. So the while each computer hooked to this device can make the connection, only the computer making the connection can make use of it.

The only resolution I was able to come up with was to install the modem on a host computer (which has to remain on when any others are trying to connect) and then install a Proxy server such as ANALOGX's (www.analogx.com). It is fairly simple to setup.

If you find a way that works through the USB sharing please let me know.
