windows xp network problem...
cooldude777 Oct-09-01 05:55 AM
here goes... i have 3 computers setup with windows xp
the first one has cable modem with 2 nic cards
the second one had dsl with 2 nic cards
the third one has 1 nic card

what i want to do is on the third computer, i want to share either the dsl connection or cable modem with it, cause its the only one without a internet connection.

i am using sygate`s home network software.
the network`s fine (like sharing files) and also the 2 computers with the internet connections work great too.

the problem is that the computer with no internet connection i can`t get to work nohow with the other too ( as far as internet goes)

do i need broadband router or is there an easier solution to this. oh.. i use a switch (not a hub)for the 3 computers to access each other.

why don't you either ditch the DSL or cable, keep one and use ICS to share the internet with the other pc's? Will be alot cheaper and can yank the extra nic out of the pc that no longer has a direct connection. If you do not like ICS ( i have used it for several years no problems) then get a router.

Agree. A router is recommended. See http://duxcw.com/faq/ics/waysshare.htm for more info. Larry
