I am setting up dsl at my office.  We currently have 5 computers networked.  I just received sbc dsl modem and software and installed it on one computer.  

How do i proceed to access the internet on the other computers that are already networked to that computer.??

Does the external dsl modem get connected directly to the network?

1)Does the first computer have access to the internet?
2)Can you go to a command prompt and give me the info that the command "ipconfig/all" displays?
3)What's your environment like? Do you have a server distributing DHCP, a DNS server, WINS, etc..

Comment:

I don't have that particular modem, however, I believe it will distribute a DHCP address automatically, giving you the proper settings for your system(s). And, I think you should connect a X-over cable from your internal port on the modem into your hub/switch (unless of course, your hub/switch has an uplink port in which you can just use a straight through CAT5 cable, similar to that which you are currently using.) Connect the system that had been directly connected to the modem into the hub/switch, and ensure that you can still access the internet (assuming you were able to prior.) Depending on how you answer those three questions, you can then connect your other systems to the hub/switch and configure your other systems similarly. I won't go any furthur until I get some feedback.

What type of DSL connection did you get? USB modem or modem router?

If you got USB modem, then you need to use either Internet Connection Sharing (if you are using Win9x/W2K) or some sort of proxy server on the machine with the USB modem.

www.winproxy.com

If you have a DSL modem router with an RJ-45 connection, then you should be able to configure it (router) and connect it to the local network (straight through for direct connection to hub/switch, if uplink capable, or crossover patch cable, if no uplink capabilites).

The second link by stevenlewis is a good source,,,been there several times.
