Cant use internet when 2 network cards are connected
Rybak Nov-04-00 04:55 PM
Hi, I have 2 computers and @home internet, and I want to share the internet between the two computers and have a network at the same time, and the first time I succeeded in it, I used the instructions on the website, but my computer crashed one day, and I had to reinstall drivers for my 2 network cards in my "host" pc, its running on Windows 98 se, anyways here is my problem, after I install the drivers for both network cards, Internet doesn't wanna work, but when I disable the network card that is meant for the network, internet starts working. There is no irq problems cause one card is using irq 11 and the other irq 10. Can anyone please help me with this weird problem. Thankyou

try using a static ip address for your nic cards.
192.168.1.1-3 subnet of 255.255.255.00 and are you using a cross over cable? or a hub with straight through cables? Also make sure netbeui is install and bound to your mini-intranet nic cards. and workgroup names are the same. in identification

I would start by uninstalling and reinstalling all network components, including ICS. ICS is uninstalled in the Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs. IRQ 10 is often used by sound cards. Try pulling the sound card. Larry

Any solutions to this problem?I have the exact same one.No conflicts,different IRQ's.Disable second card and everything is fine.I want to surf with both cards so I can try a dual modem setup.

I am not sure what you mean by network settings.I am using a cable modem.I am set up dynamically(DHCP).The working card is a Realtek8029(actually an SMC1208 but Windows found it as the above during plug and play so I went with it and have never had a problem).The new card is a Farallon PCI card.No conflicts,different IRQ's but with both cards enabled=no surfing.Disable the Farallon in device manager and everything works like it always has.Should I try two identical cards? Set up static vs the dynamic?

If you share the Internet with Win 98 SE ICS, ICS will assign the ICS host computer a static IP of 192.168.0.1. As you had a crash somewhere in the process, you may have uninstall and reinstall all network components, starting with ICS, if it is installed. Sound cards often use IRQ 10. Larry

I wish I knew. I have the same problem but I have to do a full claen install of win98se to get back online. I suspect a registry entry of some kind because a reinstall of IE doesnt help. Even removing both NIC cards and reinstalling just one (for the cable modem) doesnt help. Any ideas?

What are u'r network settings, right click on network neighbourhood and make sure u have internet sharing protocol installed >>
dialup adapter>> ms network client>> protocol for your network card>> protocol for your dial up adapter>> file and print sharing checked.
Have u made any changes recently.
I have an ME machine working with a modem and the networking works even after sharing the intenet connection.
I have noticed many people have this problem with cable net, does anyone have this problem with DSL ,coz dsl also uses a network card.
It cant be your network card, maybe cable companies have setup some security.
Have u tried anyother O/s.
