Best software that can establish ICS

April 29, 2009 at 00:40:32
Specs: Windows XP
I have 3 computer in my house(All are windows XP). One computer have 2 network adapters (let's name this as "computer 1"). My router don't have the capability to distribute internet connection to all computer that has been connected to it. So, the internet cable was directly connected to one of the network adapter of the Computer 1. There is also a network cable connected to the other network adapter of the Computer 1 to the router. The other 2 computers connected to the router through a cable but the computers said that the connectivity is limited. The internet connection sharing wizard in Windows XP does not work. I am begging you. Is there a software that can share my internet connection to the other computer? PLEASE!! I am expecting for your right answers. Thank You and God bless to everyone. My router is Asus.

My router don't have the capability to distribute internet connection to all computer that has been connected to it.

Why not?

I've never seen a SOHO router that couldn't distribute to multiple clients...........that being one of the major reasons for inventing a SOHO router to begin with. I suspect you may have only a single LAN port on your router (You should have posted the make/model of your router as that would definitely help us advise you). If this is the case, then buy a switch and plug it into the LAN port on your router and your clients in turn, into the switch.

NOTE: you will want to use a crossover cable to connect the switch to the SOHO router's LAN port.

ICS in XP will work, if you set it up correctly so you must be not setting it up quite right.

Hello! Thank you for answer. Actually, my Asus router had 7 ports. I don't know what's the model of this Asus router and I don't know how to identify it. There is no model that has been written into it.

I have seen a lot of routers and I have never seen one that didn't have a serial and model number stamped somewhere.

Usually on the underside of the unit.

find the model number and do a google search on that number and asus then see what comes up for links to info.

Just sounds like all you need to do is configure it and you will be rockin on the internet.
