Question about 3Com 10BaseT RJ-45 Network Interface Card Network Adapter

1 Answer

I want to share my internet connection with two computers while the IP given by the vendor is static(or 1 ip). So I doubt that whether using hub/routers(for single input and multiple output ports) I can do it sucessfully or not. As I know for dynamic IP case there is no issue we can do that. But for static IP I really dont know. Can anyone help me on this ..? Thanks in advance ..

A router will be the best device that can share that static ip that you have from your vendor. Router's will have an option to set it's internet connectivity to static ip and you will just need to put in the static ip address, SM, Default gatewa, and DNS servers from you vendor. And the router will do the rest.

    How to Share your Internet Connection through laptop's WLAN(Wifi) card?


    Every Windows Operating System after Windows 98 can share its Internet Connection using this Technique. Microsoft defines this technique as Internet Connection Sharing (ICS). But setting ICS is very obscure to most of the users. This comes very useful if you live with your roommates and you guys have single internet source like a USB modem Connected to one laptop only. Using Internet Connection Sharing(ICS) that laptop can Broadcast its Internet to other laptops in the room. Technically, the range of a laptop's WLAN adapter is around 20-25 meters. So it can easily handle near by rooms also. This can also be done with a PC having a WLAN card.
    To setup and broadcast your internet it is mandatory that you are accessing internet using anything other than Your WLAN card like a USB modem, Ethernet etc. This is because your Wireless adapter(WLAN) will be used for Broadcasting your Internet connection to your friends.
    Server laptop:- Laptop with Internet Connection.Client Laptop:- Laptops accessing the internet of server laptop.
    Follow the steps to share your internet connection..here it goes:--0b73509.gif
    1. Open the "Control Panel" of the laptop that is accessing Internet and go to "Network and Internet" then "Network and Sharing Center".
    2. On the right side of the "Network and Sharing Center" click the "Change Adapter Settings" and you will see all the available network adapters in your laptop.
    3. Now Right-Click the adapter through which you access internet and click "Properties" option. The properties window will open.
    4. In "properies" Window click the "sharing" tab check "Allow other network user to connect through this computer's Internet connection"97ac799.jpg
    5. In the sharing tab, Select "Home networking connection" type as "Wireless Network Connection" click "OK" and select "Yes" to the Confirmation warning. see above image.
    6. Now Right-Click the "Wireless Network Connection" in "Change Adapter Settings"and Open Its Properties.
    7. In "Wireless Network Connection Properties" Double-click the "Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)" and select the "Use following IP address"
    8. Enter the IP address as "192.168.000.001" and "Subnet mask" as "255.255.255.0"
    9. Leave all other fields blank in Server laptop, which has access to internet.0219162.jpg
    10. Now setup a wireless "ad hoc" computer to computer connection using "setup a new connection or network" in "network and sharing center" and Name it as anything like "Internet_sharing".c2debe7.jpg3a69972.jpg
    11. Now bring other laptops that will use the Shared Internet connection.
    12. Open "Change adapter Setting" (Described in step 2).
    13. In "Change adapter settings" Right-click "wireless Network Adapter" and Click its properties.
    14. In "Wireless Network Connection Properties" Double-click the "Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)" and enter following IP address:-
    15. IP address-"192.168.000.002", Subnet mask "255.255.255.0", Default gateway-"192.168.0.001" and Preferred DNS server: "192.168.000.001".
    16. Use the same step from 11 to 15 to connect other laptops and Increase the IP address by +1. Ex- 192.168.0.3, 192.168.0.4 & so on. Rest of the settings like Default gateway etc will be same on all laptops. Only the server laptop will have blank entries in these settings.
    17. Now connect all the laptop with the Wireless network(ad-hoc) named "Internet-sharing" that you had previously broadcasted in step 10 in server laptop.
    18. Now in the server laptop, disconnect and then reconnect the internet connection(This is a necessary step for Internet Connection sharing(ICS) to work).
    19. Now access internet in all laptops...ENjoy.
    Note:- For Advance Users.. this information is necessary only--The IP address of server laptop work as the "Default gateway" and Preferred DNS server of Client laptop and on server laptop these fields are blank. Use same series of IP address as used in the server.

    How to configure 4 Lan + 1 Printer +internet connections


    Hello,

    If all your connections are wired, you can use one of the three following solutions.

    1. Purchase a router with more then 4 LAN ports on it.
    2. If the printer or any of the computers have a wireless network card, then purchase a wireless router and simply connect 4 LAN cables and 1 WLAN.
    3. Purchase a hub. Connect 3 computers to the first 3 LAN ports on the router; connect the hub to the fourth LAN port and then connect the last computer and the printer to the hub. In essence both your computer and the printer will share the same IP address (the IP given to the hub) and they should work.

    In any of these situations, connect the internet connection to the WAN port of your router.

    Thanks,

    Pat

    Can't ping Default Gateway (XP) From Windows 7


    Make sure you are receiving a proper IP address from the DHCP server....If you run a cmd prompt (windows icon, type cmd and hit eneter, then ipconfig) you should see a 192.168.0.x address. If not, go to the control panel, network connections, manage network connections, and be sure that TCP/IP (V4) is set as auto-configure....


    If you are sharing the connection through an XP computer, you will need to run the Internet and connection sharing Wizard on the XP computer, and transfger the settings on a disk to the Windows 7 PC. A simpler solution (assuming you are on a cable/dsl connection would to be to go to your local big box store and buy an Internet/Firewall router. It would also increase your security.

    The router connects computers together . You are using a windows 7 p.c and connecting it to an internet connection via a usb verizon um175 aircard.
    I think you need to share the internet connection with the rest of the network and may need to feed the ethernet cable into the feed port of the router. I have not done this before but logically the windows 7 computer would have to act as a gateway to the internet.

    https://www.ibvpn.com/billing/knowledgebase/53/Internet-Connection-Sharing-on-Windows-7.html

    Note the default gateway is going to have to be the windows 7 ip address on the other computers
    You may need to set the ip address on windows 7 to a static address and then change the dhcp server settings default gateway and also increase the first address to not include the windows 7 ip address or the routers ip address in the lease range for shcp.

    I think the problem is that the modem is not giving enough ip addresses. Try configuring it. Some modems are also a router. This means that it has the capability to provide more ip address so that i can connect more pc.

    How to share internet connection on Windows Vista OS. I want to share internet connection between two Laptops using Windows Vista Operating system and the other using Windows XP. The Host computer is...


    All right let's call your Vista computer A and your Xp computer B. First you have to bring the two computers into LAN. If you already did this, please skip the next eight steps.

    Step 1: In Vista, before doing this you should enable Sharing and Discovery. You can do that by going to Control Panel -> Network and Sharing Center. Under the section ‘Sharing and Discovery, enable Network discovery, File Sharing, Public folder sharing and others if you want to. (See picture below)

    Step 2: If your LAN card that is connecting to another computer is installed, it will be shown under Control Panel -> Network Connections.

    Step 3: Right click that local area connection and click properties.

    Step 4: Under the tab ‘Networking’, click the properties Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4).

    Step 5: Click the radio button to ‘Use the following IP’ and give an IP address (For example, IP address: 192.168.0.1 and Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0)

    Step 6: Don’t give any other information, Click Ok and close everything.

    Step 7: In computer B, which is the XP, make sure you enable the LAN card which is used to connect to computer ‘A’. Here you need not give any IP information as Computer ‘A’ will assign an IP address dynamically. If it’s not working make sure there are no IP assigned and change the properties to ‘Obtain an IP address automatically’.

    Step 8: Test the connection by pinging. (You can do this by typing ping 192.168.0.1 or whichever is Compter ‘A’s IP in the comand prompt)

    NOW your computers are connected. Now to share the internet:

    Right click LAN card which is connected to Internet under Control Panel -> Network Connections and click ‘Sharing’ tab and enable both the options to share Internet. (Note: Unless there is another enabled LAN setting you will not be able to see the shared tab under properties)

    Click Ok and close. This option is given by the Windows OS known as ICS (Internet Connection Sharing).

    Now you can use Internet from both Computer A and Computer B from a single connection.

    So this is the setup you need on the Host computer as you requested, if you turn out to need help witht he XP one too, let me know:)

    I have a d link DES-1105. cant get more than one computer to work on hub/switch.


    Hi!
    Unfortunately, hubs or switches cannot be use to share internet access specially if it's connected to a modem. To share internet access, you will need a router. If you prefer not to use a router, you can enable ICS (Internet Connection sharing) on one PC and share internet access to the others. However, the PC that will share internet access will need two ethernet cards (or LAN cards).

    Your setup will look like this:


    d591ad0.png
    If internet is not a concern, and you just want to connect the computers to share files and resources, you will have to se your computers to static IP. You do not need any additional device - just connect your computers to the hub, setup a static IP on all the computers.

    If you need further assistance setting up static IP on the computers, please reply and I'll give you the step by step instruction for that.

    For any setup, a router will be the best option.


    I hope that helps.

    Good luck and have a nice day!

    Limit or no conectivity problem


    I understand that you are using the Windows Internet Connection Sharing to share your internet connection to your other computer.

    If you don't have a router to share the connection then you are using Windows ICS connection.

    When you enable ICS, the network adapter connected to the local area network is assigned a static IP address of 192.168.0.1.

    You can check this site for more information
    http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/ics_xp

    You can try to connect the two computers first without the internet connection.

    Example : PC A 192.168.0.2
    You can set the IP addresses manually, just set the tcp/ip properties and from that area you can set the IP address manually.

    And for PC B 192.168.0.3
    You dont need to set the ip address for the gateway and dns since you are just testing the connection of the two computer.

    They should belong to the same workgroup example HOME and set the computer name to PC1 and PC2.

    You can right click MY COMPUTER then select PROPERTIES then you will able to see the computer name.

    To start the wizard
    1.
    Choose Control Panel from the Start menu.
    2.
    Click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Set up or change your home or small office network.
