Preferred Solution: Sharing Internet With Streamyx, Please help me dude!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm really hoping someone can help me with this because it's driving me nuts.

I have 2 computers hooked up to a router, to share the internet connection.

Recently one of the computers got a really bad virus, so I formatted the hard drive. I decided to format the other computer's hard drive as well, as long as I was at it. After the formats, both computers has intermittent problems connecting to the web. They'd connect, then lose the connection for a while, then connect, etc. I figured the router was shot, since I was already on my second one and I know those things don't last forever. I went out and got a new router and that one seemed to do the trick- for a while anyhow. Now I'm back to the same problem of both computers occasionally losing their connectivity. If I wait a while it comes back, but 5 minutes can be an eternity where you're trying to do stuff online.

Now that I have a new router and I'm still having problems- I figure it must have something to do with my settings. I've turned OFF windows firewall and the firewall in PC-Cillin, but the problem still persists. Beyond turning off the firewall however, I'm afraid I don't know much about what might be causing my computers to have connectivity problems.

Can anyone out there shed some light on which settings I might change in order to maintain my connection? Possibly something in Windows security center, but there's so much stuff in there that I'm af... Read more

We have two desktop computers, both running Windows XP in our house. They both share a wireless broadband internet connection which works perfectly but I don't understand why file and printer sharing doesn't work. We have run the setup wizards on both PC's but we can only print from the computer directly connected to the printer. What have we done wrong? I'm not good with computers!

I installed my wireless router/modem with no problems and am currently sharing an internet connection between two laptops in my house. I also want to share files between these two computers, but i am not shure as to how to do it. I looked at tutorials on the net but they don't really give step by step info. The main question would actually be: If my computers share internet from the same wireless router/modem unit, are they arleady connected to a wireless network i can also use to share files? or i have to build up a separate network (different from the one that my router makes for sharing internet)?
help would be appreciated!
thanx in advance,

I am trying to establish a household network sharing internet, printer and files.

The players
Main computer desktop XP Pro
Theater PC desktop Vista Premium
Old Laptop XP Pro
New Laptop Vista Home Basic
Linksys G router

I have been able to get the entire community to share the internet. I have gotten printer sharing to work on all but the new Vista laptop. I can not get any of the remote computers to access any files. I can get to the shared files folder on the main computer from the Theater computer but I am denied access when I try to open the shared folder.

Any suggestions on how to work this out?

I have 1 desktop and 3 laptops in our home network and I recently bought a new linksys wireless-G WRT54G router to replace my old linksys ethernet router. All 3 laptops have wireless networking cards as well as ethernet built in. Anyway I have gotten them to share files but I can't get any of the laptops to access the internet. The desktop which is what I used to set up the router works fine. I made sure all pc's had dhcp turned on and tried the ipconfig /release /renew thing as well as half a dozen other things I can't think of at the momemt that I picked up on these boards.

I'm working on getting into Internet Connection Sharing (ICS from now one). I'm doing this for a number of reasons: I do have a network switch I hook my computer into. But, for a period of time each night, I have to unplug it. Don't ask me why. It's a long story. I do have wireless adapters that I use. However, they stopped being fully functional when we got a new wifi. But, we're not returning the wifi because all the laptops and smartphones can connect without any issues. Instead, I have opted to connect my desktop to my laptop via ICS and share the laptop's wifi. I was able to configure the IP addresses and Mask so that I could see the shared folders between the two computers. That's about as far as I got. How do I make it so the laptop shares it's internet connection with the desktop?

My current settings:
Overall:
Mask: 255.255.255.0
Router: 192.168.1.254
DNS: 192.168.1.254

Desktop (link to laptop):
IP: 192.168.1.11
Mask: 255.255.255.0
Router: 192.168.1.254
DNS: 192.168.1.254

Laptop:
Link to Desktop
IP: 192.168.1.2
Mask: 255.255.255.0
Router: 192.168.1.254
DNS: 192.168.1.254

Link to WiFi
IP: 192.168.1.3
Mask: 255.255.255.0
Router: 192.168.1.254
DNS: 192.168.1.254

I thought I might need to tweak the setting in ICS under the Settings button. But, I wasn't sure which IP address to use (most online instructions state that DHCP will assign the addresses and don't go in-depth or they have a rather bizarre IP setup).

Question: What next dude?

Hey chaps,
So, I?ve ran through all your Read & run First steps, and ran CCleaner... as far as I can tell 2 problems remain.
The first is on starting up IE: on start up of my pc the following virus warning appears (see 1st screen shot). AVG detects it and asks if I want to heal or quarantine, I have done both.
Second, is the most frustrating, certain web sites that I visit, (non-porn) do this really annoying thing, I get automatically re-directed to a dell search page, I run a dell PC and at the top of the page it says: Sorry, we couldn't find http://ad.uk.doubleclick.net/adi/N3784.AND/B2258036;sz. Here are some related websites: (2nd screen shot was too big to post, should i e-mail?)
I also run a registered copy of Spyware Detector, this obviously hasn't detected it.
Plus, when I opened up majorgeeks.com the following message appeared. (See 3rd screen shot)
Can you help, please?
 

Answer:What next dude?

Hi

you'll need to attach the logs requested from the Read Me guide.




When you return to make your next post, make sure you attach the following logs and that you have run these scans in the following order too:
CounterSpy
AVG Antispyware log - ONLY IF NEEDED you were not able to run CounterSpy
Bitdefender - from step 6
Panda Scan - from step 6
runkeys.txt - the log from GetRunKey.bat
newfiles.txt - the log from ShowNew.bat
HijackThis

NOTE: You can only attach 3 files in a single message so it will require that you use two messages to attach all of these logs!

Ok so this happened on my old XP machine, and just recently on this Vista one.

As far as i can tell, it is harmless, and i have barely noticed it, but it is a little frustrating.
All it is, is some virus or something. All that happens is some guys voice (maybe about 20 year) comes on the speakers saying "dude" in a weird sort of way. It happened quite a bit on my XP machine, but only once on this one. I looked on the internet and found nothing, and I am confused as to what it is.

Its not a huge issue, I can survive with it for now (until i reinstall) but i wanna know wtf is with it.

I'm running vista (32bit) on an Acer 5310 service pack 2 laptop. I did a safe boot two days ago because of a glitch with IE (a warning saying this script can no longer be run on this page or something such) I've since rebooted in normal mode(I've gone though F8 to do this three times now) to find that the Vista orb has been replaced by the old rectagle style. I'm pretty sure that other design type features have remained in the old style (ie 'safe mode' style) as well.Can any one help please?

So I've got this Gateway GT4009. That's a good PC, right? I got it for free out of a school that closed.

I'm a little stressed out because the problems I'm having are not consistent. When I first started the computer, it went past the XP spash screen and then it said to press ctrl+alt+delete. BUT before I could do anything it restarted and it did it again then restarted and so on.

So I decided to reinstall XP. It made it halfway through the NTFS format and then it restarted and loaded to the infamous "blue screen of death" and it had a stop code of 0x0000004e, which according to this article is bad ram, so i replaced the ram stick. Then it went to setup. Then it restarted. Then I said screw it, I'm going to ask for help.

Now I've read that this restarting happens for 3 different reasons: 1) OS problems. (which we know it can't be since I'm booting from CD) 2) a hot CPU or 3) a bad power supply. I don't have a replacement power supply handy, so I want to test the CPU heat. How do I know how hot my CPU is and what exactly IS too hot?

Answer:Help a Mac dude understand PC.

Next time before you reinstall, try safe mode (press F8 at startup).

Dunno about what constitutes too hot, but when you boot, you can get into the BIOS (there's a key you have to press right after you power on your PC - maybe Del, maybe F10, don't know what it is for Gateway PC's). Then just navigate around the menu and you're likely to find your CPU temperature.

I live in Ireland!

I have tried to purchase a MS Surface RT. I have tried every possibility!

The only possible way that I can buy one legally, is to buy it in the UK & have to shipped to someone in Northern Ireland (Part of the UK. A real Irishman would NEVER do this. I would have to cross the border into NI).

I talked to my Electronics retailer here that has been in business for over 50 years! I buy all my electronics there.

He told me that the only way he cold get them is to buy a skid load. He says he could not invest that kind of money at the expense of his general inventory!

I have contacted the Irish office of Microsoft. All they do is transfer the call to the UK MS Website. I can fill in the order for the Surface, but at the check out, it tells me they CAN NOT ship to the IRSH REPUBLIC!!

Why in HELL was I transferred to THE UK??

I have contacted all the Electronic retailers in Ireland & no one has them!

PC World told me I had to order them online! But they didn't have any idea where!!

WHAT KIND OF SO-CALLED "WORLD WIDE COMPANY" would deliberately boycott A WORLD LEADING COUNTRY!!

MAD AS HELL!!

The "Old Fart"

TULLY!!

Answer:Hey Dude, Where is my Surface RT?

Now you see what us Americans often go through when foreign companies make products, such as Nintendo, Samsung, etc, and we have to wait behind for availability.

I'm quote certain Microsoft wouldn't boycott a "world leading country". They haven't been on the market very long, so my suggestion would be to go to the largest electronics retailer, either in person or online and find one there. If the one who went to isn't a nationwide chain, then they may not be able to purchase them as easily as the major retailers.

I got a client where we gave him a fresh install of Windows Xp Pro Sp2 (Legit Copy + Updates)

This guy installs a chase game, however when it comes to trying to play it, he gets an error message saying that he needs OpenGL1.1 or greater to play it.

I found an OpenGL1.1 on the microsoft website. However think this is mainly for Windows 95 / NT Platforms as it did not do any thing.

I have re-installed the video card drivers (onboard NVIDIA GeForce 6100 GPU on a Gigabyte GA-K8N51GMF-9 SKT 939 Motherboard). Please note that these are the video card drivers from Gigabyte's Website. I have fround that the nVidia Drivers from the nVidia's website does not what to have any thing do with it.

It's currently using Direct X 9.0c (however I have not re-installed that yet)

I have tried looking at the OpenGL.org site. However the only download I can seem to find points back to the same one from Microsoft that I mensioned earlier.
However the website is talking about OpenGL 2.0. There is a lot of blurb on what it does, but no downloads for it.

HI,

I just got set up with comcast internet yesterday, I have 2 Desktops, one running XP home, and another running Redhat 9.0, along with 2 laptops running XP Pro.

Befor I was running Quest DSL and everything was working fine,

I am using Netgear wireless router, with a Linksys 5 port hub.

I can only have internet connection to my desktop running XP home, it is hardwired. I have to take incomming internet from modem into one of the ports on the Netgear because the incomming port on Netgear does not work. Then I have internet to the Netgear and my laptop will see that there is wireless but it will not see other computers or the internet. I have tried putting the incomming internet into the incomming port on the Netgear and still nothing. I am not sure what is going on but this is not working and I tried all day yesterday to fix this but nothing worked.

day one of my problems the computer froze up would do nothing so I attempted to reboot and it would not allow me to shut down so I powered off with the power button, it worked for most of that day
then later either that day or the next it froze up again and I was able to reboot, then just yesterday I set the laptop down softly and it shut off this happened twice.
The second time it would not boot, the power led would come on for about 4 seconds, and the battery light would flash about every 3 seconds. I tried taking the battery out and just leaving the power cord plugged in and it worked so I left it that way for some time, later in the day I put the battery back in just because I did not like leaving the battery out and having an opening for dust etc. to get in.
I set it down awhile later and again it shut and hasn't come back on. I still get the power light for 4 secs, and and then battery light flash every 3 or 4 secs. I am a little knowledgeable about computers so I took it apart and I don't see anything wrong inside.
I reset the CMOS just for fun and did a little cursing, then tried to pray, and here I am begging for help from you kind folks....
I haven't tried the hammer yet, thought I would check here first... Thanks in advance for your help...

Some more problems with the comp from hell from dell. My A drive will sometimes just mysteriously vanish from my computer, and I will not be able to save anything to through any other programs. It will sometimes be there when I reboot, but other times it will not.

Any help appreciated.

PS - I love the dell run around. They keep me on hold for 1.5 hrs, and then they just tell me to run a diagnostic check, virus scan, etc and tell me to get back to them. They aren't the most help ever!

Question: Cowabanga Dude(do)

First of all I want to say that I appreciate all the help I have received from MajorGeeks in the past. Thank you.


Now, down to business. First of all the problem is not on this computer it is on my other house computer. Through a recent download we ended up picking up some malware called Cowabanga, Deluxe Communication .


Here is what I have done to get rid of this. Each folder came with an uninstall so I tried that. I also tried to manually delete all folders but it seems that it only morphs itself in other folders.

It has disabled my internet which forces me to use this other computer.


I ran HJT and have attached it


What can I do to get rid of this? Please help.:crybaby

Okay, this is kinda wierd. I havn't used floppies in a long time, since before some changes were done to my comp. Anyway, I need to use one now.... the only problem is my computer doesnt seem to recognize an A: drive! It's just not there. I can't open from it, save to it, view its contents, or even see the freakin logo in My Computer.... it's like it doesn't exist.

seems the only way nvidia is keeping up is with SLI, which is not worth the cost...

scroll down to the second chart, ...ridiculous... the 6800GT killed the 6800Ultra, and all the x800's (except the Pro) beat the 6800Ultra.. man, ultra seems bad at high res and AA/AF

My goal is to mod my Dell until it's no longer recognizable as such.

Here's a summary of my question:
Which should I buy first: a CPU fan, or a mobo/PSU combination? In other words, which is more important: keeping my CPU below 55&deg; C or being able to plug the mobo into the front panel USB, power switch?

Here are the details:
I am tweaking the heck out of my Dell Dimension 2350 Intel P4 1.8 GHz 845GL system. My father got it for me two years ago because it was really cheap, and he thought it would be a good place to start and I could upgrade later. The thought was, at least it's an ATX with a P4, and my old Wintel system wasn't upgradeable to a P4 at all. Unfortunately, when I got it and opened it up, I found I couldn't add another HDD because there's no place for it! I was not aware of Dell's lockbox/proprietary policies before I got it. Needless to say, this is really annoying!

So, I've been putting a lot of effort lately into upgrading, modding, and doing all I can to negate the warranty! But I have a predicament right now, and that is, I've put myself in a place where I cannot just stop where I am. But I'm overbudget on my upgrades for this month, but I've ended up with a PC in a sort of a "transitional phase" and I need to know: what's the most important step to take next, if I can only do one thing?

My first step was to replace the graphics card and disable onboard graphics (and I... Read more

Answer:Dude, you're killing your Dell!

Update: This, and other pages led me to think the PSU is proprietary. But my mobo doesn't have that other 6-pin dealio that the older Dells had. It looks like a standard ATX PSU. And if you look at the specs for these knockoffs, you'll see it's 20-pin ATX. Does anyone know for sure? A new PSU would almost cost more than a mobo!

I'm new to using forums. Running Windows XP SP2Working on a friends Dell Dimension 5150. First it would not turn on, did some poking around and looked like the computer had been dropped. The ram had disconnected, fixed that Starting cleaning up the thing (history, viruses, malware all that fun stuff) When I went to reboot it, it seems XP was corrupted. The taskbar had reverted to what windows 2000 task bars looked like. Yet it was below the viewing space. No start button at all up able to drag the task bar to make it larger. Can't open IE. The only I can make the computer function is through Task Manager. Some areas of Concern I have is...When I boot the computer it informs me that the Floppy Drive is not found F1 to continue F2 to try again. After I get past the Floppy seek bios pops up with 3 options...1) Windows NT 6.X2) Windows NT 5.x3)GRUB4DOS (it defaults to this option, when I select 1 or 3 it tries to boot but doesn't.)Also at one point in the booting process I'm prompted with the text {{{{ " Urr! wee..."}}}} <<<<< Just like that.

Hi, I have the same/similar problem as dude 1234. Firefox using 100% CPUI didnt want to steal his post so I made my own.I have doing a bit of research on different things for browsers, this amongst them. (Well I dont know that its the browser actually).Every now and then my computer seems to just grind away, fans rev to their limit, windows wont open and the whole system drags for ages then to a total stop.It seems as though it is a memory problem, but having read that post, I wondered if it was my browser? I have a Pentium 4 CPU 3.00 Ghz 1.5GB of RAM. My computer doesnt always play up like that but it has its moments.The easiest way to get past it is to close everything and then restart F/F, this does cure it but is really inconvenient if I have lots of windows open.Can I do anything to cure this phenomenon please?

Answer:Same as dude 1234 CPU Grinding away at 100%?

Well your computer is better than mine and, anyway, I have investigated and determined its not a processor or memory problem. Try using Opera browser and see if you think that eliminated the problem. I'd be interested to know."Browser" is the name of the software you use to download and display web material. Examples of browsers are:- Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Chrome.In case you are not familiar with the term "software", it means a computer program. Computers have hardware (all the electronic bits), and software (all the instructions that are given to the hardware to make it do something useful). My apologies if I have over-simplified this, but it sounded like you needed to know.

I had wrote a thread amonth ago under the title "Where is my disc space???". The suggestions were all helpful, but they were only about retrieving lost files and such. I've finally settled into the mind set that my treasures are gone, (photos, videos, music, ect ) but I thought that when you do a full system restore that it not only wipes out all the old stuff but also clears up or clears out space. I'm down to about a 150 to 175mb of space which leaves 0% of memory. I don't know where my space went or how to get it back. I have the minimum programs and such. I have nothing to throw out. Do I have to get back all of the old files to go through those and delete what I can? HELP! S.O.S. May day. May Day. Man Down.

"Memory" is built into the machine and stays the same. It has nothing to do with disk space.

If you are low on disk space, you need to find out what is using it and remove anything unneeded, or get a larger drive.

But being that the laptop is a secured login its not accepting my password now, and just tells me "The system could not log you on. Make sure you User name and domain are correct, then type your password again." Ummm so that's special. I don't know any of the other admin account user names or passwords but I am able to see it on my network.

At the login screen press ctrl+alt+del (you may have to press it twice) and it should present you with the old style login. From there you should be able to choose the domain you are logging into.

I quickly located the file and deleted it, and emptied my bin, cleared all my cookies and history on my browser, etc. I then boot up my PC in safe mode, look for any of the listed .scr infections posted of the steam forums but found none. I can't completely recall anything strange going on either after that. I then restarted and scanned my computer with Malwarebytes, Superantispyware, and Avast. Only Supersantispyware found three threats which were cookies. It took action and still I can't completely seem to know whether or not i'm infected with the virus.

Last week I did a format and re-install of my main computer. I am currently using Outlook 2007 Beta.

I did the normal export to a PST file. However when I restored, the only thing that i can see it my Message Headers. I open up an email or reply to an email, the message body is no longer there.

I have also noticed that new email are being downloaded, but again, only the header is being visable. No message body.

Any one else have this problem?
Any way that I can get my old message bodies back?
More importantly, is there any way that i can get my new message bodies to show?

Answer:OUTLOOK 2007 BETA - DUDE! Where's My Emails!

have you tried your pst's on a different pc just to make sure they are no corrupted? You will need to use the original since they arent backwards compatiable...atleast they arent in the older versions

We have a PC which we use for our SBS 2003 R2 Server. It's an entry level server with 3 PC connected to it.
Specs are Intel Core2Duo E8400, 4Gb DDR II Ram, 2x SATA 160Gb Hard Drive (Software Raid for OS), 2x 1Tb Hard Drive (Raid via Adaptec Adaptec 1220SA), 1x 1TB Hard Drive for nightly back up.

This PC is left on 24/7. However every 6-8 weeks, the data from the 2x 1TB Hard Drives disappears. We will go into MY COMPUTER, we can still see the RAIDed Volume. However when we open up the volume, there is no data on the volume. We have found that if we restart the server, the data is back. During the restart, i notice that the RAID controller card is reporting to me that the volume is OPTIMAL.

This morning, we had this happen for the 3rd time, and it's getting a little annoying with the little mirror heart attack that you get finding that your data has gone walkies.

We are using your Adaptec Utility to monintor the RAID. The RAID is set up as a RAID1 (or Drive Mirror).

Any advice on what could be going wrong and what steps me can take to resolve the issue.

Answer:DUDE! Where's My RAID Data? Adaptec AAR-1220SA

Have you checked device manager when the data on the volume isn't found? It could possibly be the RAID controller itself adn Windows would report that the device is failing when you can't find the files. Also does the card report that the volume is optimal everytime or only when it fails the previous time?

I would say start with a driver reinstall/update first and go from there. I'm assuming your software RAID running 2003 is 100&#37;?

Windows 7
x64 bit
Retail version
Hardware is all new except for the video card, which was functioning fine last week (never had a BSOD error before this new setup)
I have reinstalled the OS as off 11/1/2011 (after getting tons of blue screens, i installed a 2nd time)
CPU: AMD Phenom (tm) II X6 1035T Processor 2.60 GHz
Video Card: Radeon HD 5750
Motherboard: ASUS M5A97
PSU: Corsair GS600 (600w)

Homebuilt system.

I haven't updated the BIOS or any drivers past what I received on the motherboard install disk. The motherboard is new out of the box as is the RAM, CPU (and heat sync), and PSU.

I installed win 7 initially and after installing MB driver updates, etc..started to go through programs (flash, java, etc...) and began getting a lot of blue screens of various kinds. I narrowed it down I thought to a driver issue with my video card. Apparently the atikmdag.sys file that comes with catalyst screws up win 7 computers? I was careful not to install the video care drivers the 2nd install of 7 and I got no BSOD errors till I did. Having said that, all my errors seem to be unrelated to my video card, examples: "bad_pool_header" and "system_service_exception".. I'm a bit stuck. Also my desktop window manager has crashed a couple times.

Thanks for any help..

There were 8 BSOD dump files, 1 was -0- bytes (indicates catastrophic, sudden hardware failure). The remaining 7 don't offer us much as they seem to point everywhere, but nowhere. ATI video, Networking (tcpip.sys), memory, security descriptors, etc...

was corrupted and it has been recovered. Some data might have been lost.
Registry hive corruption may be HDD failure.

Hi All,
I have established a Virtual Wifi Miniport and would like to share my laptops internet via the Miniport. Whenever I connect my android phone with this access point, it works perfectly for a few minutes and then all of a sudden there is no internet on the phone. The phone remains connected to the laptop hotspot but the internet access is no more there. Now at this point if I disconnect the connection between my phone and the hotspot and then again try to reconnect back again, it wont even connect. The phone will keep on searching and shows connecting status but can never connect. I have tried all sorts of softwares connectify, virtual router, intel mywifi and even tried to create a hotspot from the cmd using netsh command. All the hotspots work in the exact same way intially works perfect but maybe after half an hour internet is gone. I have completed all the steps properly even changed the settings in the laptop adapter with interet access to allow other networks to connect but nothing seems to work. I have a Windows 7 Machine and my wireless adapter is Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless N-100 and the drivers are up to date according to windows. I know that its a problem with my laptop/OS or something because my android phone can connect and remain connected( without losing internet ) to the connectify hotspot in my wifi enabled desktop PC.I am breaking my head over this for the past 15 days even formatted my system once but no use. Please help if you can..please!

I'm currently using a Dell Inspiron 1501, running Windows Vista (it shipped with XP but I upgraded). Recently I got an Xbox 360, but it's located at the opposite end of the house from my wireless router, and rather than blow $100 on the microsoft wireless adapter I decided to connect it to the Internet through my laptop using ICS instead.

However, whenever I plug my Xbox into my laptop and turn on ICS I lose my Internet connection completely. Vista's Network Sharing Center claims that I'm still connected to the Internet, but I can't access any webpage and my router doesn't respond to ping, and the only way to get my Internet access back is to restart my laptop.

At first I thought it was a driver issue, but I installed the latest Vista drivers for both the ethernet controller and the wireless card, but the problem did not go away. Can anyone suggest some fixes?

Question: Sharing internet??

Hey all,

I'm having great difficulties sharing my internet connection between computers. Here's my current setup:

I have a wireless network in our house. My main computer is using a usb-card to connect to the network. My other computer does not have a wireless card installed. I have an ethernet cable running from the main computer's network card to the other computers network card. However, when I try to share the internet on the main computer, (windows xp), it disables the wireless.

Any help would be appreciated!
 

Answer:Sharing internet??

if you have a wireless network i am assuming you have a consumer level wireless router (like linksys, netgear d-link etc.)

the router should be used as your dhcp server, so plug the cable modem into the WAN port, and connect the other computer via cable to the router, then the other computer should pick up on the wireless

I have SBC DSL on a Win XP machine. I want to share my Internet connection to a Win 2000 machine. I have a second NIC on my XP machine going to the 2000.

1) do I use a cross-over cable or a regular cable?

2) the cable I am using has printing on it:

is this a cross-over or regular?

3) I have shared the NIC card on the XP, what else is required?

Thank you.
 

Answer:DSL sharing Internet

FWIW, you'll have MUCH better luck just installing a broadband router for the sharing function. You'll also get firewall protection and a Ethernet switch to connect three or four machines. SMC currently has a rebate deal on one of their routers, and it ends up costing less than $20, hard to go wrong...

Hello, I have 3 nic on my pc. First, connected with ADSL modem. I want to share it to the other nic (both of other). Is it possible to do that without using router (just windows ics)?

Answer:Internet Sharing?

yes it is possible via bridging the connections,

here are the instructions

"1. boot up pc
2. click on the Windows button and type "network and sharing center" and enter
3. on the left right under manage wireless networks, should say change adapter settings click that
4. right click local area connection and disable it.
5. right click local area connection and click properties.
6. there should be a tab that says sharing go to that tab.
7. there is a box that says allow other network users to connect through this computers internet connection. uncheck it if it is checked.
8.hit ok then right click local area connection and enable it.
9 now select both your wireless network connection and the local area connection and right click and it should have the option to bridge connections. when you click bridge it will do its thing and should work when its done.

A network bridge is just letting one device pass through another's network connection. No routing or NAT is needed."

The problem is the host computer that has dial-up modem in it cannot connect to the internet anymore. After trying to connect for a while it says "this page cannot be displayed".

There were a lot of good ideas posted to my thread when I had this problem see click here. Like you, file sharing wasn't a problem, but internet was.One good suggestion was to ensure that PtoP service was enabled in XP.

My house is located right next to a hotspot. The only problem is that to get connected to the hotspot, I have to be in the garage. So I have a computer that is in my garage. I am connected to the hotspot via a USB wireless adapter.

Since I have multiple computers in my house, I want to share the connection from the garage computer with all my other computers in my house.

Only problem is how can I do this?

I was thinking that I bridge the wireless adapter to the lan port of the hotspot connected PC which is not in use, and then connect a router to the LAN port of the hotspot connected PC. I then just get another USB wireless adapter, and connect that to my router and wha la!......but nope..I have tried this and failed....so that's why I am here.

Again, how can I do this?

Answer:Need help on sharing internet.....please help!

Well to sum it all up. Get a wireless Router. Then buy receivers for the other computers located in your house. I Like Linksys, and works great.

My Router is located in the basement, im on the second floor, and there are two other computers connected on the wireless network. Everything works fine.

Also you can set WEP or other types of security on the network Via install. Or manually whatever is preferred.

So get a wireles router and some receiver units and you'll be good to go. Installation takes 10 minutes max and all computers should be hooked up instantly if your running XP

Answer:Internet sharing

If you have the money just buy a router, it will save so much hassle in the long run.It can be done using 3 ethernet cables and a crossover cable, but I had hassle with that a few years ago. Since I bought my 4 Port LinkSyS cable router it has run like a dream. It can also be configured to work hand-in-hand with Zone Alarm Pro and is so damn easy to setup that a monkey with one arm could almost give it a go.A router/Switch is definately my recommendation for trouble free sharing.Good luck.

We have two internet connections at work, a T-1, and cable. We currently have a domain setup, and all the computers here get there internet from the T-1 through that domain.

Now we have a computer we want to use as a mail server, so we want it hooked up to our network, but we don't want the shared T-1 internet, we want the internet for this computer to come from the cable.

I have the two network cards installed and working in the computer, its currently connected to both the domain, and the cable internet.

My question now, is how do I go about fixing it to where the network card thats connecting to the domain / file server, does not share the internet, just the local network resources, while still letting the second card receive internet from the cable.

Any and all help would be appreciated.
 

Answer:Internet Sharing

what operating system is on the server?

and what exactly do you mean by 'internet' do you want to be able to browse the web? or do you want all email traffic to be sent and recieved through the cable?

i guess either way i need to know what OS the server is using...

somewhere you should be able to tell the email server which interface to use (the one with the cable connection)

Question: Internet sharing

Hi I'm new so be gentle. I've been around PC's for some time but I'm not really a techy type. I've got a network of three PC's. The Host running XP home and the other two running Windows 2000 Pro. I decided to splash out on ntl Broadband 1mg. Every thing works OK (file sharing, printer sharing on all pc's) accept I cant connect to the Internet on the two PC's on my network that are running Windows 2000. Anyone had this problem?

Question: Internet Sharing

I am using a wirless network since computers are all over the house, and laptops. I have an older PC that I am planning on running as a server using Red Hat Linux. I have Red Hat installed and the system up ,but need help configuring the network. How can I connect two PCS (one windows XP, one Red hat) so that they both have internet. The router is downstairs, while these PCS are upstairs, and the one with XP is using a wirless card. What I am trying to do right now is connect the two PCS together using a crossover cable, will this work? If so can someone help on configuring, or what is an inexpensive way of getting what I want, also I dont really like wirless linux, it has problems some times .

Question: Sharing Internet

Okay, I'll try to keep this short. I'm stationed on a Marine Base and haven't had internet access. Currently using Cricket 3G internet through a Pantech UM185 modem in my laptop's USB. I have a Toshiba Satellite A505 with 4GB RAM. Running Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit).

They just installed wifi in the building, so will be switching to that soon. However, I also have a phone that can use wifi... and my son comes to visit from time to time and likes to be able to use his XBox and his phone with wifi too. Unfortunately, they want to charge per device... not just have wifi for my room.

So, here's what I'm trying to do. I want to use my Cricket internet access on my laptop and connect it to the Netgear N600 wireless dual band router so that my phone and my son's equipment can share my internet connection. If I can get that to work, I'll switch over to connecting to the building's wifi for my laptop and sharing that.

I've currently gone in and turned on ICS for my Cricket connection. I can find the SSID from my router on my phone, but it has no internet. I've tried connecting the laptop via ethernet to the router both in WAN and LAN sides. No luck. Just tired of getting ripped off. At home I was able to share my Verizon FiOS internet access through a wireless router. Just frustrating me. HELP?! Please?
