Crossover with one way cable modem
jason Sep-25-01 00:57 AM
I have two computers one running windows ME the other windows XP. Both
have linksys 10/100 ether net card.
I used crossover cable
I was able to share files and printer

I could not share the internet tell now (I have one way cable modem)
I think I did everything right
For me I put
Ip 192.168.0.1
Subnet 255.255.255.0

Below is the same as my regular connection
I enable dns
Hose jason domain ***.*******.net
DNS 216.222.21.2
216.222.21.3
domain suffix search order ***.*******.net
=======
for the XP
Ip 192.168.0.5
Seb 255.255.255.0
Wingate 192.168.0.1
DNS 216.222.21.2
216.222.21.3

did not put dns suffix search or hose or domain. Because all I find was DNS suffix for this cnection
What to do to make it work


Please help I have been trying for a week now

The two NATs I tried, Windows 98 SE Internet Connection Sharing (mskb 231648, ICS Does Not Function with Unidirectional Adapters, http://support.microsoft.com/directory/article.asp?ID=kb;en-us;Q231648) and Sygate (http://www.sygate.com/support/technotes/sg_sa/SGFAQ019.htm), with an internal Surfboard cable MODEM and a 56K dial-up MODEM on a one-way cable service do not work. They do work with external cable MODEMS that integrate the cable and dial-up functions, such as the Surfboard SB2100D (http://duxcw.com/digest/Reviews/Modems/cable/sb2100D.htm), on a one-way cable. I see from the instructions at http://www.nat32.com/htm/surf.htm that NAT32 might work, but have no experience with it. If you get it to work, some of our readers may appreciate knowing how you did it. Larry
