Internet link sharing (Windows Vista/Windows 7 or Windows Vista/Ubuntu)?
I'm a DSL customer and also do not intend to acquire a router as I will not require it in a couple of months. I recognize it is feasible to connect - in a DSL wire to your modem and also hop on the net. I additionally recognize it is feasible to share that link with an additional computer system making use of an Ethernet wire.
So below is my trouble, one computer system is making use of Windows Vista and also mine is making use of Windows 7/Ubuntu 9.04. So just how can I share the link in between these 2 computer systems.
Go acquire a cordless router. An economical Linksys/netgear will certainly cost you $49. Also if you do not require it after a couple of months, you might locate various other usages. Mostly all digital tools currently are comming out with WiFi. You could too capitalize on it. Net link sharing on Windows is unstable at ideal. At worst it is hrs of stress! Is your time and also stress worth the $49?
To set up link sharing in between your 2 computer systems:
- Connect both computer systems' RJ - 45 is with a cross - over Ethernet wire
- Open the network and also sharing facility, locate your network link, appropriate click it and also most likely to buildings
- In the "Advanced" tab, examine package to Allow various other customers to connect via this computer system.
- Select the networks you would love to show to and also you need to get on your means.
I'm sorry if its not specific, I'm doing this from memory on an XP equipment. I have arrangement link sharing on my laptop over WiFi so I can connect to the net on my iPod Touch via my laptop is EDGE network card. rather wonderful
Do you have firewire or an additional network user interface on both? You can not simply plugin a button in between the DSL modem and also both computer systems. I would certainly make use of the 1 Vista equipment arrangement to have Internet Connection Sharing and also the various other 2 connect to it.
