I know this is easy question for some people out there, but I have found no resources on the internet with where to get information. I will have four computers on it sharing one line from a cable modem. Someone said something about making a gateway computer and then assigning IP address from it for the other three. I don't really know much about networking, so links to information would be really helpful. Thanks for the help.

Really, the easiest way is to use Internet Connection Sharing in either Windows 98 SE or Windows 2000.

For a more technically oriented article, go to http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q234/8/15.ASP

For a simpler one, try:

Hope that helps!

OK, I assume you have connect all 4 PC with network.

You see each PC in Network Neighbourhood, can you?
IP address has to be manually assign on each PC (Something identical eg 10.0.0.10 to 10.0.0.14).
After that, you have to make sure there is TCP connection between all PC, on any of 1 PC, ping the IP address of others PC, if it works, go to next step.

Download WinGate, install the WinGate server on the Cable Modem PC, install the WinGate Client on the others PC, selct which service you want the Clients acess via WinGate Server. The default will enable HTTP pass through, but you may want more net service enable to client PC.
