How would I setup one of my Windows 2000 workstation to act as a Internet sharing router. I have four workstations that I need to connect to the Internet and I have one broadband connect.
Could you give me detail help on how I would go about accomplish this task?
Just follow these steps I have listed:
Step 1) Install a second LAN card in one of your PC's (one connect to Hub, another connect to broadband modem.)
Step 2) Connect the 4 PC with a Hub
Step 3) Set each PC with different IP address (I.E. PC1---192.168.0.1, PC2---192.168.0.2, PC3---192.168.0.3, PC4---192.168.0.4)
Step 4) Ensure that you can see all four PCs appear on "My Network Place"
Step 5) Find the broadband dial-up connection icon inside "My Network Place"
Step 6) Right click mouse of it, then click to "Properties"
Step 7) Looking for a box which have ICS-internet connection sharing, then enable it
Step 8) Set the I.E. of other three PC's to make them connect Internet through LAN
