To share an internet connection, you need to have two network connections, one for the internet connection, and another for your network.

If your DSL has a USB connection, plug it into one of your computers and then then go through the network setup wizard, from there it will walk you through sharing an internet connection.  

If all the computers have wireless, you can set up an adhoc network, and share the connection that way.

Honestly, the easiest method would be to go out and buy a router.

We are on Starband Satellite internet. Have windows programs , both vista and xp. We have the linksys G wireless internet system. How do we install it ?? So far, when we put it in, nothing works. No...


Yes you can but it is not as easy as using a router with a cable or dsl connection.
The 360 modem requires the Mission Control software in order to run properly so you can't just hook it straight to a router.
What you need to do is use an old computer to sit in the corner and act as a router(kind of) and then connect it to a real router.
When your finished you won't even need a monitor for it. You will need either two network cards in it or 1 network card and a usb port to hook it up to the 360 modem. Make sure network cards are also working correctly. Install the starband mission control software and make sure it is working correctly.

In Winxp go to network connections and right click on the one hooked to the starband modem and click properties. Now click on the advanced tab and check "Allow other network users to connect through this computers Internet connection.
You can plug the other network cable straight into a switch and this computer will hand out ip addresses through ICS(Internet connection sharing) built into winxp.

You can also get a wireless router and change the ip address of it to match the range that ics is handing out and disable the dhcp server so that you don't have two things handing out ip addresses.
If you use the web accelerator you will have to put it in the browser of each computer that you will be using (in the browser under proxy). It will be something like 192.168.0.1:9877.

Also make sure your running a firewall on your little router-computer. If the computer is running winxp professional you can take the monitor off and use remote desktop connection to check on things or to control it. Or search the Internet for VNC.

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...


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.

Share a PPPoE connection without modem


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.

Connecting internet to ps3 using sprint air card


Do an ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) between your PCs. With Windows, its under the Network Connections Icon on the Control Panel. It'll show your different ports, to different devices (ie. cables to other PCs, or internet) Give them IPs by right clicking their icon, select properties, then find TCP/IP and select properties again and making your own IP numbers. Then find your internet connection one, right click, select properties, then a VZaccess screen will appear, select advanced and the properties screen like the others will appear. Then click advanced and select the ICS option and which connections you want to share.

D-link cant accesed internet 4pc


Most of DSL modems are connected to PC with USB cable...
n if ur server is connected with other pc on lan .. you can use internet sharing option available in winxp.

Following are the steps to enable Internetsharing for other pcs.


How to use Internet Connection Sharing loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); To use Internet Connection Sharing to share your Internet connection, the host computer must have one network adapter that is configured to connect to the internal network, and one network adapter or modem that is configured to connect to the Internet.

On the host computer loadTOCNode(3, 'summary'); On the host computer, follow these steps to share the Internet connection:
  1. Log on to the host computer as Administrator or as Owner.
  2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Click Network and Internet Connections.
  4. Click Network Connections.
  5. Right-click the connection that you use to connect to the Internet. For example, if you connect to the Internet by using a modem, right-click the connection that you want under Dial-up.
  6. Click Properties.
  7. Click the Advanced tab.
  8. Under Internet Connection Sharing, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box.
  9. If you are sharing a dial-up Internet connection, select the Establish a dial-up connection whenever a computer on my network attempts to access the Internet check box if you want to permit your computer to automatically connect to the Internet.
  10. Click OK. You receive the following message: When Internet Connection Sharing is enabled, your LAN adapter will be set to use IP
    address 192.168.0.1. Your computer may lose connectivity with other computers on
    your network. If these other computers have static IP addresses, it is a good idea to set them
    to obtain their IP addresses automatically. Are you sure you want to enable Internet
    Connection Sharing?
  11. Click Yes.
The connection to the Internet is shared to other computers on the local area network (LAN). The network adapter that is connected to the LAN is configured with a static IP address of 192.168.0.1 and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0

let me know if it helps.

best regards,

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.

Connecting 2 PCs Via the D-Link Hub


Hi Ajog,

Those Ips look good. Make sure the Subnet on both is 255.255.255.0. Since they are both getting to the internet, I assume the Gateway IP is correct.

On the 192.168.1.3, got to Start>Run and type in CMD. A black window will open, and type in PING 192.168.1.65. You should get four responses. If you don't, you probley have a firewall issue.

Do that same on the 192.168.1.65 machine, back to the 192.168.1.3 machine.

On the XP machine, follow these instruction, just skip down to Step 9.

Vista gets a little tricker, but not bad. To setup the network on the Vista machine, go here, ad click on the Network icon.

Using the network wizards should setup your firewalls to allow File and Printer Sharing.

Good luck
