It's not that ICS won't work, it's that the starband computer modem cards do not work with ICS. So I can't make a disk to share woth others.
Let me see if I can explain this better:
I have 5 computers (XP and SE).
One has a model and dials up
One has a satellite modem and connects by satellite.
I want to have the computers (all except the one on dialup) share the satellite connection, not the dial up.
They network just fine on dialup, but when I pull out the dialup ethernet cable out of the hub and stick in the satellite ethernet cable, the internet connection does not transfer.
In preperation, I gave the dail up the same IP and settings as the satellite computer, so I expected a smooth transer. No such luck.
Ideally, (after I first get them to accept the satellite connection) I want to be able to switch back and forth by pulling out one cable and sticking in the other to get them to switch between sharing a dual up and a satellite connection. Am I dreaming?
Why do I want to do this? Because so far I have not been able to get Porivo to recognize a shared satellite connection. Porivo helps pay my mortgage, so I want to run it on all 5 computer at least all night on dialup, then switch back to satelllite during the day and let it run on two computers.
I guess I have champaign dreams and a kool-aid knowledge base.
