How to share internet connection using ADSL modem to two PCs/NBs
I have an internet connection using an ADSL modem (local ISP) with one PC and everything is going fine. Now, I want to share such internet connection with another one notebook or PC, what should I do then and what other peripherals should I add so that both the PC and notebook are running the internet connection using the same source.
Thank you very much!

To use same internet connection you will need wired or wireless router, I would suggest wireless router since you don't have to mess with wires, you can buy these routers anywhere best one to get is Linksys and it comes with all the instructions.

Check to see if you can plug the wan port to your adsl modem and then plug your pc to the router. on ADSL, some ISPs will record your mac address to avoid sharing. Just see I your router supports cloning your mac. All you do is login to your router from your pc, and it should be under your Wan settings. Use DHCP unless specified otherwise, and ensure to enter any pptp login info if your ISP provided any.
The reason you have no internet is because the router is specifically for cable. your description contains errors what i think you mean is that you have gone from cable dsl to an adsl, correct me if i am wrong. Basically your modem connected to your router via an ethernet cable and then the router fed the wireless signal to your wireless devices or via ethernet through the 4 ports in the back. With adsl you have a feed from your phone line to an adsl modem so the only way for you to get the dsl router working is to have two ethernet leads connecting to your pc, one from the modem to the pc and one from the pc to the router. You would also need to setup internet sharing on the pc thats connected to both devices.
If the Internet light is off then there is a problem with the phone line to the ADSL modem or the modem is faulty or there is a problem at the telephome exchange.
Disconnect the phone cable at the ADSL modem and connect a phone handset to this cable - check for a dial tone and that you can dial out.
If you don't get a dial tone, use a different or new phone cable.
If the phone line is OK then : -
Ring your ISP to get them to test your connection to your ADSL
# We are connect two computers together to share Internet, printer, scanner, files, and even programs
We can do it through either way:
1- Use A Crossover Cable And Two Network Cards.Two network cards are installed in two computers.Then use crossover cable to connect them.
2- Use a Phone Line and Two Special Adapters Sold as "Phone line network Kit". Two adapters are installed in two computers. Then use existing Phone line to connect them.
Connecting Two Computers Wirelessly:
1- Wi-Fi 2- Bluetooth 3- Infrared
Several types of fixtures exist for home networking:
1- Hubs 2- Switches 3- Routers
2- Computer with the internet
Before you can connect to the Internet and access the World Wide Web, you need to have certain equipment. In brief, you must have:
-A computer (preferably running an up-to-date operating system); - -A modem and access to a telephone line or a local area network (LAN) that is in turn connected to the Internet; and connection software that will allow you to establish an account with a service provider and access the Internet
Modem: This converts your digital computer information into analogue telephone signals. Phone Line: his may be your biggest expense after the equipment.
Internet Service Provider (ISP): ISP has a permanent connection to the Internet.
ADSL: a newly standardized transmission technology facilitating simultaneous use of normal telephone services, data transmission of 6 Mbit/s in the downstream and Basic-rate Access (BRA).
ADSL facilitates the simultaneous use of normal telephone services, ISDN, and high speed data transmission.
Another advantage of having an ADSL line is not missing calls while you're online, as both voice and data can be transferred at the same time.
Unplug the plug (from phoneline) on back of USB modem, plug into Zoom router. Plug one end of an ethernet cable into router and one end into your PC. Type http://10.0.0.2 into a web browser (eg. Firefox or Internet explorer) username/password is admin/zoomadsl go to basic setup and input your ISP username and password (the one given to you by your internet provider) under PPP. Click configure my connection. Save changes and then write to flash (both buttons on bottom of page)
You need to go to control panel>network set up wizard on the pc which has the internet connection and when you go through the wizard amongst prompts select, allow other computers to connect through this computer and then finish off the wizard.
On the other computer you do the same but, on this one select this computer connects via another computer on the network and again finish off the wizard.
