quoteIf you do that, then both your computers will need routable IPs; most cable operaters charge more for this.Thanks for the advice. I just have a few more questions:
1) I'm confused on how to connect the hub. Do I connect each NIC to a port on the hub (via wires) and then connect the uplink port on the hub to the cable modem?
quoteUse Category Five Ethernet cable. "Ethernet Adaptor" is another way of saying "Network Interface Card."3) What kind of wires do I use? Do I need an ethernet adapter (I don't know what that is, but I've heard that it's needed)?
quoteThat's the way it usually works.4) I don't have a cable connected to my computer; I have a cable box. Right now, the clone is connected to the cable box, which is connected to the actual physical cable wire. Does that make a difference in the installation process.
quoteYou need to have TCP/IP installed as a protocol for each connection; you can verify this by going to Control panel and then Networking.5) What do you mean when you typed "Make sure TCP/IP is installed on each and bound to the MS Client."?
quoteNo. A hub merely allows you to connect two or more machines on an Ethernet network.6) I don't know squat about a hub. Does it require any drivers (or some sort of software installation in order to function)?
quoteS'ok. Though at this point, the recommendation of the all-in-one Linksys box is probably the best for you.Sorry if I sound stupid (or if I'm wasting your time/ boring you with simple questions), I'm just starting to become involved in this subject. Thanx
