Question about Arris SURFboard SB4200 Modem
Just got a question, I know it is possible for computer 2 to get on the internet by dialling into computer 1 via phone to get on the internet through computer 1's DSL connection. I just cant remember how, do you have any idea how to do it? If im not mistaken you have to bridge the DSL and dial up modem somehow.
Hi, yes it is possible but it is not a good solution. If you are using Windows XP try configuring network using network wizard to configure as "this computer connects to the internet through another computer".
This setting does not always work straight away as you usually have to set up firewall.
AWith this set up the computer connected to the modem will act as a proxy, repeating the signal on the other computer.
This solution will make navigation slower, force you to keep low firewall defences.
Best thing to do is buying a modem or modem router and build network using a router.
