I am trying to share a DSL connnection between two computers, both running Windows XP home edition. I have a DSL Modem and a hub. The documentation for the modem indicates that I should be able to share the connection by connecting the modem to the hub's uplink port and connecting the other two computers to the hub's other ports. I can't get this to work. Any suggestions? Do I need to set up static IP addresses on the two comptuers or something? (If so, how exactly do I do this. E.g., what ip addresses should be used?) I've tried XP's home networking wizard already. For the longest time both computers were saying that a network cable was unplugged. I got that message to go away by setting the NIC's to 100 Half Duplex. (I read on a website that that's as good has hubs can do.) But the computers still could not see each other or the DSL connection. In case I did get this to work, would I also be able to share files / printers between the computers without sharing them with everyone else on the internet? The reason I am using a hub is because I already had it around the house. Would it be easier to network the computers a different way? Thanks.
