View Full Version : NETWORKING WITH DSL
08-16-2000, 07:53 AM
When using a router to network the computers in my house, do I need a static IP, because the DSL provider gives out non-static IPs with their service. Is there any way of going around non-static IPs, and having multiple people connected to the internet at one time, eventhough I have one non-static IP? Suggestions are greatly appreciated.

sure if you have windows 98 SE you can just go into dail-up networking left like on the internet connection and select "share this connection". Thats it you're done.
If you don't have Windows 98 SE try using Sygate it will allow you to do the same thing. This is the best Internet sharing program. All you do is install it on the server and you're set to go.
You must have network configured for both of these to work.

Heyward, the best place for you to find this info is in a related newsgroup, not an unrelated forum.

Amazing...there was a reason why your post got locked last time. It's not so much the off topic nature, it's just amazing that you got your post locked once and tried again...slow learning at its best.

Moving to correct forum.
You're going to need some kind of proxy or NAT(Network Address Translator or something). If you're using that one linksys router (I think linksys at least) that has the built in firewall and is for DSL/Cable, then it has a NAT built into it.
If you aren't, you can setup one computer with two network cards to run as the server. Plug the DSL connection into one of the network cards and run the rest of your network through the other network card.
