Network proxy help
Posted on 2004-08-07
Hey people, ok.. im having problems setting up my home network.
I have a adsl wireless router and a laptop which connects to it... thats all fine, i can use the internet on the laptop with no probs.
I also have my desktop which i would like to get on the net through my laptop, and use the laptops connection. The desktop has a non-wireless adapter, so does the laptop in addition to the wireless. I have the correct cable and can make a connection but not share the internet.
Can someone please give me a step by step stupid idiot guide of how to set the network up, with ip / subnet /default gateway examples, and also any proxy software etc i will need.
heres the ips of the laptop and router which work for the laptop to connect to the net
router IP: 10.0.0.2
router subnet: 255.0.0.0
laptop ip: 10.0.0.5
laptop subnet: 255.0.0.0
thanks in advance
