Inexpensive way to network cable modem [XP Pro] to a Win 98 network
Posted on 2004-03-25
We need an inexpensive way to include a HP Pavilion with a cable modem onto our youth room network.
Three computers [two Pentium I & one Pentium III] running Windows 98 SE, 10/100 base-T, with a 5 port switch/hub [I'm not sure of the exact specs for this hardware. I just know it's not a router].
One stand alone HP Pavilion running XP Pro and a cable modem.
To allow the 98 network to have access to the cable modem. One computer at a time using the modem is ok. This needs to be done with freeware and cheap [or preferably we can find someone locally to donate] hardware as our church is new & small with little funds.
I have experience installing & managing LANs but my WAN experience consists of installing and using dial-up modems for Internet access.
