    Network Internet Sharing Help

    Hi can anybody help,

    I've currently got 2 PC's connected using a Hub and my Cable Modem is attatched to the host computer, I can share internet access but the host computer has to be on, what do I need to be able to access the internet from my client computer with the host switched off.

    Do I need a router or something.

    Someone help please.

    Just get yourself a router m8, I have the belkin 4 port LAN and 1 port WAN this is the only interface that needs to be switched on with the cable modem for access by anyother PC attached to it.

    I'm using a netgear DG814 (built in modem) router & I've been well pleased with it. It has RJ 11 ports & 4 Network ports + a splitter. The only problem I had was the idle time out- i changed that to '0' instead of the default '5' min & i didn't have to reset anymore. It cost me £128 from Dabs:

    This is for a cable modem not adsl. I'm not aware of any routers that have usb connections for cable modems. You need a new cable modem with ethernet - I just happen to have one (3com CMX) if your interested 30 quid + whatever the P&P will be. You'll probably have to register the mac address with ntl again tho.
