Networking with 2 LAN card on a PC

By parthiv_13 ·
I have 2 cards on my PC. One is Onboard LAN card on intel 845 motherboard. And other is inserted in PCI slot. Now I am having shared LAN internet connection 256 KBPS. So I can access net on my PC. Now I want to share to one another PC by utilising second card inserted in my PC. Both PC is having Windows XP professional, p4 2.4 Ghz , i845 MB, 512 MB RAM.

How can I do it ?

Thank you for your answers in advance.

Plug in a CAT5E Cable to the second LAN Card and run it to a Switch, from the switch run another CAT5E Cable to the other computer and you'll have the shared Internet connection that you want.

If you use Windows XP, you can consider ICS (Internet Connection Sharing).
This is a built-in option in XP.

I could explain the details for the setup, but there are quite a few websites that have the procedure yet explained :-)

Pls take a look at this one and follow the procedure that is described on that page:

Should work like a charm ;-)
