DSL Sharing with a hub??
yalcineskiyapan Mar-29-01 00:37 AM
I have a Win98SE and a currently win95 which will be running Linux in the near futute. I have a Verizon's DSL connection with the modem and I have a 4port Hub. Is it possible to network them without using my Win98 as a host with the ICS. Would it be able to keep the same connection with Linux running on one of the machines??

Yes, but you would need and IP address from your service provider for each computer. Most service providers will charge a monthly fee for a second IP address. You did not state how the Verizon box is interfaced to your computer... If it is external, it is connected by either a second network adapters or USB. USB MODEMs can be difficult to share.
Linux can implement the Internet sharing function. Other ways of sharing an Internet connection are at http://duxcw.com/faq/ics/waysshare.htm.
