WIN98 SE ICS and One-way Cablem Modems
mmouth Jul-14-00 08:45 PM
I read the following article which starts with a claim that the author has had success configuring WIN98 SE with ICS on a system accessing the internet via a one-way cable modem (transmit conventional modem, receive cable modem). The article goes on to explain that this functionality is not supported by Microsoft. Has anyone else had success with this configuration? Did you have to do anything special to set it up? I've had success using a product called Wingate, but would like a WIN98-native solution instead of the application-level approach of Wingate.

TIA
Scott

It is not a claim, it is a fact. One can share an external one-way cable MODEM with Win 98 SE ICS. The cable MODEM I shared with ICS is a SURFboard SB2100D (http://duxcw.com/digest/Reviews/Modems/cable/sb2100D.htm) and it is interfaced to my computer with a LINKSYS LNE100TX Fast Ethernet Adapter (http://duxcw.com/digest/Reviews/Network/linksys/lne100tx.htm). Most external one-way cable MODEMs should work. I also say in the article that Win 98 SE ICS will not work with an internal one-way Cable MODEM. That is also fact extablished by first hand experience and stated by Microsoft. Larry (the author of the article)
