2 modems

Is there a way to use two modems connected to different comps on a network? Not two at a time.

When we attempt to use any of them, the comp tries to have the IP # 192.168.0.1 . If the other modem was used before it ( the other comp would take that #), en error occurs.
Helpy help?

Are these modems for dialing out or dialing in? If your dialing out the IP should be assigned by your ISP, if your dialing in you can define the IP of the computer dialing in.

I see,

If you share a modem out it will force the host pc to use that address and furthermore the other PC's connecting will be assigned their IP addresses from that PC. I can't see a way of doing this twice on a network. I would have thought that if your at the point of needing two modems to connect your users it would be better to get ADSL.

medenizme,

If you enable ICS in the same workgroup
The IP's assigned will change

You should not use ICS in an existing network with other Windows 2000 Server domain controllers, DNS servers, gateways, DHCP servers, or systems configured for static IP addresses.

This should help you out
