Internet Connection

Recommended Posts

Not quite a luddite, and sorry if this has been asked before but a search hasn't come up with anything.  Having just bought a laptop for OH I would like to know if  it is possible to connect two computers to the internet at the same time, via a dial up connection, using the same phone line. I need an extra adaptor anyway to physically do it but would be grateful for any thoughts.

Connect the 2 PC's together using a CAT5 CROSSOVER cable into the RJ45 connections on each PC

The PC that has the modem connection, go to Settings -> Network Connections and right click on the modem connection, enable sharing, et voila!

Firewalls may cause a problem, it may also be wise to set both PC's in the same workgroup (right click 'My Computer' - > Properties -> Computer Name)

Good Luck
