Hi!
I have an ADSL Internet Conection and I want to share it over a network of 3 computers.
I have
1. ZTE ZXDSL831AII modem supplied my my ISP.
2. DLink 10/100 Ethernet Switch 8Port
3. Required number and lengths of LAN cables.
My ISP has two plan settings
1. Home
2. Business
In Home it supplies to ony a single computer
In Business per computer a separate IP.

I have Home Plan

Currently i can connect to the internet through anyone of the computers at a time.
I can access net on all the systems but not at the same time.

Can anyone tell me how to share the internet connection over a network?

Why not use a router? You could use Windows ICS if you have 2 NICs in 1 computer.

There is a possible way of doing it. I have configured all my computer to access the internet using the same connection shared over a switch.
But the problem is,
I can't do it. I had to ask a friend of mine this morning who does that sort of thing but i do not know how he did it.
All i can tell is he accesses my ZTE modem and clicked on some settings(of which i remember something called NAT)
Thanks :) . If someone has got a solution please post.
Else Mods mark this thread solved :)
