I've talked to a technician a min. ago, and he told me the following...

(Host computer is connected to a cable modem via USB)

1. I should connect the "jacks" to a LAN ports of each of the computers.
2. I should setup a a host computer to a static IP, 192.168.0.100 for example.
3. I should setup a guest (connecting to the internet) computer to a static IP of 192.168.0.101.
4. I should setup a mask on each comps. to 255.255.255.0 and set a gateway on both comps. to 192.168.0.102.

I thought, that the gateway should be setted up only on a guest PC as a host's IP, like 192.168.0.100. Some confusion is here.

P.S. My ISP is giving IP addresses automatically (DHCP assigning), and has several DNS's. Should that be considered?

Thx, :thumbsup:

Doing what your technician told you to do is suffient
A cross-over cable [or null cable] is only used when directly connecting two computers together through the LAN ports without the use of a modem/router

Getting a router would be easier just FYI.

What you are talking about can be done with ICS(Internet Connection Sharing) here is a page on how to set it up. You don't have to do ICS you can do it all manually. You are correct tho the Default Gateway on other PCs would be the host PC's IP address. In your example it would be:



Host PC = 192.168.1.100.....255.255.255.0......Whatever it is now

Client PC = 192.168.1.101......255.255.255.0.......192.168.1.100

Hope this helps thumbup.gif

So, here I am, guys. On my new computer, accessing the internet and, of course, BleepingComputer Forums from my new LG Flatron M2362D TV Monitor. 16-to-9, Full HD (currently in 1280x720 for a comfort typing), etc. ... The feeling is awesome, just awesome. To remind you my PC's specs.:

1. AMD Athlon II X2 250 (3.0 GHz; 2048 KB L2 cache)
2. GIGABYTE GA-MA78GM-US2H (AMD 780G w/ ATI Radeon HD 3200; Realtek HD sound; GbE, etc. ...
3. 1x2 GB of Kingston RAM (probably DDR2-800 (CL5))
4. WD 500 GB HDD (WD5000AAKS (Caviar Blue))
5. NEC DVD+/-RW ... 20x; w/ LabelFlash tech. (tattoos discs under 0.6mm of top)
6. Very-very cool looking DTS 1918D chassis ... w/ LED display, showing system stats.
7. 450W PSU, for a future upgrade to HD 4850 or higher

** NO SPEAKERS ** -- LG Flatron M2362D has a built-in speakers on an accumulated power (both) of 10W

So, thanks very much, to those who have helped me. I was waiting for an assistance for about 2 weeks... no BC Advisors got involved anyhow (maybe except of a few). I'm very glad with my PC, and that I have an Internet working from it right now.

To clarify:

I shouldn't get a static IP's on both machines, because my ISP is giving / providing a dynamic ones. I've talked to a technician, and we understood, how to act to get an internet. He told me to go to my Host's PC Motorola modem's settings, and change it to be internet sharing with other computers in the network. Then, he asked me to recall him back. I've just added my own thing - setted up this (client) PC to catch IP's, etc., automatically... and volia - it worked as a wish.

Ok, not too much to type, don't wanna spam you guys. I hope that you're happy for me as well. Well, good luck to ya' all, and please... let me get chillin' well. :D

P.S. I'll be needing your help again soon, when I'll be setting up an internet from an Ubuntu 9.10. Thanks...

Best regards,
rhino

...see ya!! :thumbsup:
