Pls Help on setup my home lan
  Posted by  Constantin-oleg Feodorov  on Thursday, March 09, 2006 at 7:50:22 AM (EST)
I'd like to share my Internet connection in my house with my wife.
I have a permanent internet connection through lan card ,using an IP, a gateway provided by my Internet provider.
I wonder if I can use 602Lan to connect throgh a hub with my wife's computer that have Win98SE
(I have WinXP Professional with SP2.
A brief descr of my home network:
MyComp(WinXP) --Local Area Connection-->Internet Provider
MyComp ---Hub 8 ports -->MyWife's Computer
MyWifeComputer --Hub 8 ports --> MyComputer --->Internet

How I can manage this?

You can do that, no problem. What's the issue you're having?

I need a help step by step for dummies to solve the problem.
What I have:
When I view my network connection I see :
1.Wireless network connection (not connected).
2.1394 Connection (1394 Net Adapter -"what is this?") - Disabled by me.
3Local Area Connection (Realtek 8139) - This is my connection to Internet.
The #3 connection have the following parameters for the TCP/IP Protocol:
Subnet mask: blah.blah.blah.blah
Default gateway: blah.blah .etc.etc
Preferred DNS Server: blah.blah.number.etc
Alernate DNS Server : some.numbers.etc.etc

The problem is:
I need to configure the two PC's in order to comunicate using TCP/IP protocol before install 602Lan Suite as is stipulated in the help in the"Additional Notes and Requirements 602LAN SUITE 2005 Software602, Inc.".
what that means?
How I can configure my internal network between the two computers without altering the TCP/IP prameters that I have not touch for the connection #3?

For now I have take in account this option:
Internet -->Hub--->Two PC's.

Maybe is better:
Internet->PC(two network cards) ->Hub( or another PC)-->PCs.
Is this a better aproach?

your second suggestion is right, you connect the internet to your PC, run 602lan on it, connect a hub, switch ar another pc to the second network card that you have and there you go - working lan with internet access

Home networks work best if you put in a router (if not dialup connection). Router connects to ISP and all computers connect via router. Adds hardware firewall and eliminates extra layer of complexity of using software solution. For >$100 its worth it.

Thanks a lot for your answers!
I have managed to connect the two PCs using a second network card (adapter)installed on my desktop PC.
I have configured the IP of the one card in order to use my account (ISP) and the second one I have configured for my internal network (in order to connect the notebook).
I will take in account the router solution that sounds good for me.
