Internet Connection Sharing will be slow if you are using a 56K connection, think about how slow your system is now if you open twice as many windows and download twice as many files (all at the same time) and you will see that your speed will be about half what you have now, if you have a faster connection ISDN or Cable or DSL then you would probably not notice any slowdown.

upgrade one to Win98SE and you can use Internet Connection Sharing, a feature of Win98SE

If you want to simultaneously download the same file (  for a faster download ), then you need to have to modems in one computer and use the bonding between channels. You can not do it on 2 seperate computers.
I hope this helps.

For this you would also need two phone lines and two Internet accounts, is this what you are looking for??

The simple fact is you cannot have two computers with modems online at the same time on one phone line, except for the Internet Connection Sharing which only uses one modem in one computer but lets the other computer share the connection if they are hooked together.

for speed up your download you need only TCP stack tune- try MTUSpeed soft for it, and reget, getright or same soft

are you using a modem or a cable modem. i am using a cable modem and i have windows98se internet connecting sharing installed and both of my computers can d/l files at the same time at the same speed. i know how to set it up with a cable modem if you want the directions just let me know.

SysExpertCommented:
I think that you need to explain in more detail exactly what you want to achieve. We have already told you that you can not download 2 files simultaneously from two different computers. Also sharing a modem connection between two computers is not going to speed things up either.
 What more do you want to know ?

there are actually new modems put out by 3com that can share the same internet connection.
