Question about Computers & Internet
I have 2 PCs named PC1 & PC2. PC1 have 2 Eth cards. PC2 have 1Eth card. I have a broadband modem with one network port and one USB potr on it.I also have a HUB.I want to configure the network as follows,
Eth0 - connected to internet (Modem)
Eth1 - connected to LAN (HUB)
Eth0 - connected to LAN (HUB)
I want both PCs can access the internet.
Give me the compleate details of what should be the IP adresses,Subnet Masks,Default Gateways of all the Eth cards.
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.
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.
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.
