Question about Sony PlayStation 2 (PS2) Console

1 Answer

I already have 2 PCs that are both internet sharing using a non-router 5-port hub (one with WinXPPro that's connected directly to the internet, and another with Win98SE that's connected using a proxy). Now I'm about to connect my PS2 to the one of the hub's open ports, and I would like the PS2 to have internet sharing as well. I would like to know how to configure my PS2 (and maybe the PCs as well) so that the PS2 and both PCs will all have simutanious internet sharing using the single and without the expence of getting a router.

    But in order to make the 2nd computer share the internet, I need to configure a proxy on that computer. I don't know if proxy configuration is possible with the PS2.

You can't share your connection on the PS2 to other devices. Connecting the PS2 into your hub should share the connection to all three devices as normal.

Cant share internet connection


the reason why is you likely have a bridge modem. You have no connection holder other than whichever pc boots first/network device wakes on the lan. In order to 'share' your connection, you need a router or unbridge your modem. In all honesty, it's cheaper in time to purchase a reputable router (Linksys, Netgear, Cisco, Belkin, D-Link, I don't trust Airports- no web-based access makes me TWITCHY) If your connection is DHCP (first computer gets online only, others are out of luck)- the vast majority of routers are already set to DHCP- so it would be a swap of the box (moving your switch out) or just bridging in the router (setup would be modem > router> switch in port one of the router > your PCs) The additional benefits are the router would allow you to do basic firewalling of your private network, as stated share the connection, adds wireless capability (if you have an Iphone, Android or other smart device like a game console, TV, printer, etc), and gives more ports to play with
In all honesty, the majority of "gateway" modems provided by the ISPs I have personally dealt with are better off as just modems, and have an actual router doing the heavy lifting. They usually have just basic router capabilities- and the modem firmwares I have dealt with... well, let's just say it's job security for me!
Cost of the fix: about $25 for a basic wireless 4 port router, cost goes up as you add bells and whistles (and ports!)
Time to install: ~15 minutes depending on setup, more if you have a static or PPPoE connection (I doubt it since you didn't mention having to use a piece of software to get on, or having to setup the pc itself... I think your connection is DHCP (dynamic), however you could confirm w/ your ISP since most if not directly support routers, then at least provide passive support)

IF possible to share internet on TE100-S50g ? Because i have 2 computer but my second computer doesn't have internet :(


Hi!
As I see here what you have is a switch. What you need is a router. A switch has no capability to share an internet connection between two PCs. I suggest purchasing a router.
If you have any more questions feel free to come by again here at fixya.com
You have a great day.

Can i connect a hub to switch which is already have many other connection and also can i connect two or more than 2 systems with that hub


Yes, you can connect a hub to a switch with as many devices as the hub has ports for. You will have a bottleneck at the port the hub links to the switch but if the demands are low then you probably won't notice any significant degradation of speed. Move your printers on to the hub ports to free up switch ports for PCs, servers and router connection.

One static IP has internet. how on a LAN?


Hi,

You need two network adopters in your system.
Connect Internet connection in first Network card and from the other network card give it to your Switch or hub
If you are using XP system you can use Internet connection sharing to share the internet in your LAN systems.
Follow the steps to enable using ICS

1.Enable Internet Connection sharing in the LAN properties in the first network card.
2.Now your second network card automatically get an IP address in the range of 192.168.*.* series
3.Connect other systems in the LAN and make sure the system has selected Optain IP atomatically from DHCP.

You are all set.

There is also an advanced way to setup this .
Install IPCOP firewall in a system with two network cards and u can share the internet with the firewall settings

Siemens 4200 2 computers


Yes and No! The 4200 gives you the option to connect via USB or Ethernet. You can only use one or the other to connect. You have two options. The first DOES involve another "gadget". The second does not!

Solution #1

I realize you're not looking to use additional equipment, but a network hub, switch or router will give you what you need. You can pick up a very inexpensive router for under $50 or even better a wireless router for a few bucks more.

I recommend a Linksys Wireless Router (Model - WRT54G) as it is very user friendly and comes ready to use. Just connect the port labeled "Ethernet" to the "WAN" port of the Linksys Wireless Router. Then connect both of your computers to any of the four "LAN" ports.

Solution #2

You can connect the first computer directly to the 4200 via USB and connect the second computer directly to the first computers ethernet port using a Network Crossover cable. Without a router of hub between the two computers, a crossover cable is required to allow them to talk to each other.

Once you have them connected to each other, on the first computer open the network connection properties for your internet connection (will be the one setup during the install of the USB modem) and click "Share This Computers Internet Connection".

Now the first option is surely the most reliable and keeps the traffic separate.

Hope this help!

Wired router connection


Hi,

To my knowledge, yes. "dial-up internet" connotes standard modem attached to a computer unlike DSL modems (non USB) that are stand alone. Therefore the dial-up internet modem should be connected to a single computer. That PC then would have to enable its Internet Sharing for others in the network to access the Internet. This is accomplished by hooking all the PCs to a single network using a hub/switch. The router can perform this function (hub), however, all the PCs in the network would have to use for their Default Gateway IP address not that of the router but that of the PC with the dial-up internet modem. Having said that, it would then be necessary to use static IP adds in all the PCs. The built-in firewall and DHCP features of the router would not be necessary.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

2 Eth Cards one for Internet & one for LAN


First of all, I would really recommend you to buy a Cable/DSL router. It is quite cheap, usualy more secure, much easier to configure and troubleshoot. Also, it does not require to have one PC up and running all the time, hense saving energy. Do you know that a PC running 24/7 may cost between 60$ and 100$ in electricity annually? This is more than the cost of a basic router!

But, since your question is about sharing your Internet connection with a PC, here are some guidelines. I will assume here that you are using Windows XP.

On PC1:
1. Connect the modem to Eth0 in the PC. Do not connect anything in the USB port of the modem.
2. Make sure that the link lights are lit both side. If they are not, you may need a cross-over cable (this is usualy not the case)
3. Configure Eth0 to get IP address DNS automatically
4. Disable (uncheck) all protocols except TCP/IP on Eth0.
5. Run the Network Setup Wizard (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Communications > Network Setup Wizard) and follow the steps.

On PC2:
Simply run the Network Setup Wizard (Start > All Programs > Accessories > Communications > Network Setup Wizard) and follow the steps. Specify and you Internet connection is through a Home or LAN network.

That should do it.
