Hi Kyle,

That is a network set up tutorial. You do the same to each PC on the network. Simply ensure that each PC is given a unique IP address and it will work.

When you get the hardwired steup configured come back and we'll deal with the wireless version.

Hi Kyle,

Forget Internet Explorer for the minute.

Can you let me know what your current hardware set up is ie number of NIC's and what type of router you have.

This will give me a better handle on what you are doing.

No Kyle you can have mixed wired and wireless networks with a wireless router.

Ditch the USB modem and grab a wireless router. I would recommend the Netgear DG834GT but the plain old G would do aswell.

It will make setting up your network more simple and more efficient and the Netgear kit is a doddle to configure. At the moment Netgear are running a promotion of a free wireless card with the DG834GT wich would work well with your laptop. See here for more info.

If you get the kit and need help let me know and we'll get it sorted.

You'll have a much better setup than the dreaded Internet connection sharing you are trying to run now.

Can i still expect to achieve a 2.2mpbs connection speed when using this?

Will i be able to share files and printers through the router?

Without doubt.

Your network will run at about 100 mbps where as your internet is at best 2.2mbps.

It will be a long time before your internet outruns your lan.

And yes file and printer sharing will be and is available.

Your router will connect at whatever speed your line is provisioned at. So yes 2.2 mbps will still be available and as your network is faster than that, all lan stations will connect at this speed.

And as per my last reply, file and printer sharing will be available.
