will be limited to that of a switch to provide a simple LAN connection between the two PCs. The routers Gateway abilities need to be turned off and set to router functionality. In addition DHCP and NAT addressing gets turned off as well.
You would then use the network connection wizard of XP Home on the PC that has the dialup connection. Choosing to use this PC as a Gateway, Windows will use it's own Internet Sharing Program (ICS) to provide a shared Internet connection.
A broadband connection to the Internet provides a simpler and much faster connection. If at all possible, this is the way to go.
computer model number: hp pavillion ze4610us
OS: Win XP Home Edition
Router: Linksys wireless-G 2.4 Ghz Model:WRT54G
I purchased Linksys router in order to network my desktop PC and my laptop to be on the internet at
the same time using my Dial up ISP.
I didn't realize that my router does not support the server for dial up connection.
Linksys Rep further told me that I still could network
both computers at a local level but i wouldn't be able to use the dial up connection as a gateway.
He told me that I could do it through Win XP networking software but he was not allowed to tell me how seeing he works for Linksys etc.
I need to know if there is anything I need to purchase in order to network both computers together
to run the same dial up connection?
Thanks for all your help in advance.
