At work, my department uses Macs. The rest of the hospital is PC. IS refuses to network us with the rest of the hospital, so my Internet connection is dial-up. We have our own local Mac network for the computers and printers. I recently found out that by running the Ethernet cable into the hospital network port, I can access their T1 connection for internet. This is great because it is much faster than my dial-up. Problem is, if I'm hooked into the hospital network, I can't hook into our local network to print. I bought a Ethernet hub thinking that was the solution. I think I need a twisted pair cable to access get an internet connection through the Ethernet hub. No problem. But I realized I only have one uplink on the hub, but I have two separate networks I have to access. Don't I need two uplinks? Do I daisy chain two hubs? Can I uses an Ethernet/usb adapter for a second Ethernet port on the computer? I can't ask IS because they won't have anything to do with our Mac stuff. Nor do I really want them to. There's got to be a solution. Also, I can't access my Earthlink email when connected to the hospital network. I can download files from FTP sites, etc., but can only access my email through WebMail. Is this a firewall issue? Many thanks for any insight!
