I have a home network going here. 3 clients connecting to my gateway for a total of 4 computers on a hub to a cable modem. Problem I have is... after a period of time, ICS seemingly stops working for the clients. ALL clients. My host computer can still use the internet freely while the clients are left in limbo until I reboot the host computer. Thing is, when I reboot so the clients can use the internet again, I usually end up hitting the reset button on my host computer because if I: Start/Shutdown/Restart the host computer just sits there & hangs & gives me a blue screen error till I hit that reset button.
Running Windows ME on all computers. Host & clients. Network Everywhere NIC as my connection to the cable modem & a Linksys USB NIC for the connection to the hub, which is a 3Com HomeConnect 5 port hub. All Windows Updates are up to date & applied all patches or newest drivers I could for the NICs. Firewalls are stealthing any hacking abilities & AntiVirus is doing its job sufficiently.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Also... almost always, when the computers are left on overnight, the internet stops working again for the clients.
