    Hi Barry,

    Yes.

    But before we tell you, you will have to tell us little things like what
    operating systems are being used on each computer and what internet
    connection you already have (dial-up, broadband).

    Rumour has it, although I have never come across it, that some ISPs prevent
    internet connection sharing, which is what you are going to be doing. If so,
    perhaps someone could tell me which ones do this...

    Take large red lead and plug into the 440v socket on the wall.
    Wait for lights to dim--then you know you are up and running.

    I prefer the thermo-fusion chisel myself. Of course, I always keep it
    next to the molecular hyperwave pincer, just in case.

    Next time you use that thermo chisel to break into the ship i will set
    marvin to paranoid mode----there again what is the probability of that?

    It's a finite improbability dependent on whether Marvin has interfaced
    with Eddie (the Shipboard Computer) to compute the odds.

    Absolutely! And you can too, for only 30 Altairian dollars per day.*

    *30 Altarian dollars per day is an estimated figure and is provided
    strictly for purposes of comparison. Actual expenses may be higher. **

    ** In fact, we're (tinw're) sure of it. Quite frankly, if you're not
    absolutely prepared to lie, cheat, steal your food, pass rubber checks
    to unsuspecting hotel clerks, hoodwink customs officials, forge
    passports entitling you to diplomatic immunity, utilize bogus student
    and/or elderly identification cards to get yourself into tourist
    attractions at reduced rates, stiff everyone possible on tips and
    otherwise make a mockery of Intergalactic Law, just about the only way
    you're going to get by on 30 Altairians per diem is by staying home and
    camping out in your own backyard.

    You need a cross-over cable if you are not going to use a hub.

    Go here, and read all the tutorials.

    http://www.practicallynetworked.com

    There are several ways of doing this. Pick the one that suits you
    best.

    I would suggest you get a cable/dsl ROUTER (not a hub) with a built-in
    switch, and follow the instructions supplied with this device.

    Cheers,
    dan

    It's even irritating to go through these posts, the ones with the
    wiseguy responses. I'm no guru, but here's what I did and it does work:

    Get a Linksys Wireless -g 2.4 gb router (about $60) and two wireless
    cards. This is the only way I know of that both computers can access the
    internet without two addresses. (Most ISPs, in fact most probably
    everyone) will try to charge you $10 for a second address. The problem I
    had was networking internally both computers because of the flakiness of
    wireless, perhaps because the computers are on different floors. I fixed
    it by hardwiring nonwireless cards to each other. You don't need
    additional hardware. One wire connects to the router, the other to the
    computer itself. Hope this helps.

    You don't need wireless for this.
    Why would you suggest a wireless router and wireless cards if you
    ended up going wired anyways?

    FWIW, if your wireless if flaky, it's going to be flaky for both
    internet access and LAN access. If it's solid for the internet, it
    ought to be solid for LAN as well.

    Cheers,

    Again, I'm no computer geek, which I mean in an admiring way, but this
    was not my experience. I found the wireless to be wonderfully reliable
    bringing in the net, but very unreliable skipping upstairs in my home. I
    hope you're right, Dan, because then the author of this tread can tie
    his computers together with just cables, and it should work. I hope he
    let's us know. (I only jumped in here because of people who instead of
    using email drag us along as an unwilling audience to their schoolboy
    howlers.)

    I'll take your word for it. That's very curious. The wireless is
    strictly the physical medium over which the network traffic passes.
    It doesn't care whether the packets are destined for the internet or
    for another computer on the LAN; if the internet is OK on it, it
    should be good for LAN traffic too. (Slower than 100 Mb Ethernet, but
    good nonetheless.) Anyways, interesting. If you'd care to start a
    new thread about it, I'm sure we could get your wireless LAN issues
    resolved.... ;-)

    Cheers,
    dan
