I have a XP machine with a NTL cable modem (using USB at the mo). I want to let the XP machine share this connection to other machines on my home network. I brought a wireless gatewat/router to create my home network (I will later move the cable modem onto the router - stage 2 and yes the modem has an ethernet port).
The problem is..... My XP machine can access the internet OK on its own. All is OK until I plug the XP machine into the router and then the internet connection is lost. It seems that the machine is now trying to route everything via the router instead of the cable modem.
Any ideas? I need to get this working for the weekend.
Many thanks in advance.
