Use Internet Connection Sharing on the computer with the 2 nic cards in it.

I think you need a network hub. Not sure, though.

Either a router or with two NIC cards.
Heres a paragrapgh from a site:

The simplest way to share your connection if you are sharing between two computers is through ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) this is part of the Windows OS. All that is required is a NIC card in both computers if using a USB modem and a piece of Crossover Cable connecting the two computers together. If you have an ethernet modem you will need two NIC's (one for the modem the other for the cable) in the host and one in the other computer and a piece of Crossover Cable connecting the two computers together.

Another way to share your connection is to use a router. With this you can share your connection to many different computers.

best way to share internet connection through a network is by using a proxy program --- i have one installed on my network -- works GREAT! I'll give you the download link if you want?

Use CAT5 ethernet cables and an inexpensive Ethernet SWITCH. A switch is your best bet for someone who is new to networking. It's plug-and-play, all you need is a NIC card in each computer and 2 ethernet cables for both.

You should get a 10/100 switch, unless you're using Gigabit ethernet , then a 10/100/1000 switch.

you can actualy do it without a hub, but it is rather complicated.

take the first computer and install 2 network cards on it, and one on the second. then of course run your network line into one of the nics on the first computer.

you have to have a little bit of network experience to do the next part though. you take a network cable, and make one end 'a' protocol, and the other 'b' protocol, then add new rj-45 ends and cremp it up. then just connect it to the extra nic on the first computer, and the nic on the second.....then you can use internet sharing that way without having to pay for a hub

You can connect two computers with just a Network card each and one cable.
You can share the Internet using the settings in you operatings system,

To connect the computers use a CAT5E PATCH cable. this is a normal CAT5E netowrk cable with a couple of wires swapped round, so you can even convert an old cable (trust me it works ).

Sorry ..late reply..

Right now, we are using Aztech DSL Turbo 900 modem.

Ok, after discuss with my friend,
we decide to take the this approach-
2 nic in host computer (computer A),1 nic in computer B
and connect thru cable.

Some Enquiry
a)The nic i am using now is 10/100 Mbps fast Ethernet card.
Right now, there is already 1 nic in host computer.
So, I slot another nic just beside it in the same board, right ?
and install exactly like the previous one, right ?

b)After I install, I just connect the nic (host) with my
nic in computer B using network cable, right ?

c)Then, how to set the protocol between computer host and computer B?
can anyone provide a step by step manual ?


TQ
