Cable Modem Sharing Hardware Needs?
camaroguy Aug-08-00 04:05 AM
I have a cable modem, two computers(each with a nic card), and a 4 port hub. I have the two computers "talking", but how does the cable modem hook-in? The hub doesn't find it. Do I need another nic card? I am running 98 se so i can do the ICS once i figure the connection out.

You will need two NICs for the computer with the cable connection, one for the cable MODEM and one for the local area network. Much has been written about this requirement and the reasons for it in this Forum. Search and you should find it. Larry
