I am trying to share dsl with a 2nd PC in my home. I have a wired Linksys 4 switch hub. The frustrating thing for me is, I had it connected and
working about a month ago.
The PC I'm trying to share dsl with has been having BSOD problems, and I just ran "recovery console"(formated?) yesterday, its working now, but I
cant configure the network on it like I did before.
The Linksys has a CD thats says to use before doing anything, as I did, and it completes successfully on this machine. Though at the first step on
the CD it checks for internet connectivity, and its not working on the 2nd PC because of this.
I am connecting all cables correctly, and following the steps as far as using CD,connecting cables, power,modem, then power up the PC's.
Sombody said I may have to update network drivers...I didnt have to before
In network connections on this PC everything is normal, and one connection (wich is connected) says it is being shared. But the 2nd PC isnt
seeing the connection.
sorry to ramble, I can explain more.
thank for any help
Added: I just realized that in device manager there is no Netwrok device showing up. I know its onboard.
