Networking two win98 pc's w/ two ISP addresses
Posted on 2000-04-03
I have two Win98 PCs connected by a crossover cable. My cable ISP has provided me with two IP Addresses because I want to use both computers with cable modem. I know I can do ICS and proxy server software is also available, but I don't care. My main question is:
Can I use a crossover cable to connect the two PC, assign each the provided IP address and start using the high-speed modem?
I've heard I have to use a straight-through cable. Is it true? and if yes where can a buy such a cable?
