About Windows 98 Networking

By ask_anurag ·
Hi,
I have three systems with win98 installed.I connected my two systems with rj-45 cable,but there is not hub in between,now i want to connect my third system with them,but i don't want to do hub between them.I installed two NIC cards on my first win98 system but it's not working.I also want that my both clients could not see each other they can only access data,printers,internet from first system.

I would appreciate if someone give me the solution for it.
Regards.
Anurag.

What you have created is a router not a hub. I've never come across one set up in Win98. If, possible, swap your second NIC for a PCI Hub otherwise drop your network to 10 MB and use coaxial leads.
That negates the need for a hub. Any good recyclerwill have 10 MB cards.

route.exe is what you need to use...
go to the command prompt on the dual nic pc and type route /?. i believe you will need each nic to be on a separate subnet mask and have static ip's assigned to them... and then setup a 'static route' between them using 'route add'...
you are doing this from curiosity right? because an old 10MB hub should be about $15 and a brand new 100MB hub is only about $40...

Hi ; There is a good reason to use a hub. It is faster and can handle simultaneous traffic by address. Cost of the Hub is the same as the 10MB cards and wire so you're better off with the hub, with clear routing, and multiple connections routed correctly.
