internet connection sharing

By bethcha ·
i'm using Switch for my networking here for two computers with Windows98se.I already have two lancards, one for share and one for home. I did'nt assign any IP address but instead use the automatically detect IP address then use DHCP for Wins Resolution, no gateway assign and disable the DNS. I have also tried assigning IP addresses and so on but to no avail can't share the internet.
Now that i'm using automatic IP addressing what will i do next to the client computer?do i have to put the gateway with the client computer?please tell me if u can step-by-step because i'm not an network expert but willing to learn..hoping for your reply..thanks in anticipation..

Use a Router

by haileyan In reply to internet connection shari ...

Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) can be clunky and there are many internet applications and services that won't work when you are using ICS.

I highly recommend that you just get a router. The router can automatically share your internet connection with all of your systems and it will also hide your computers from others on the internet.

Are you using dial-up or high speed internet? Well I have the router for you either way in the link below. The router linked below can share a printer for everyone on the network, share your dial-up modem and/or share your highspeed cable/dsl connection.

If you want to use a modem & printer:

If you want to connect just to high speed:

If you must use ICS... When you setup ICS it promts you to create a floppy disk for the client computers. Make sure you run the setup program from the floppy on the client computers.
