Computers to share Starband internet. Wireless essential. XP Pro & Win 98SE
Posted on 2004-10-14
This is for a home. The XP Pro computer has Starband Sattelite DSL. It's a Dell P4. The other computer is one floor up and is a P2 or P3 with Win98SE. We tried Intel Anypoint to have them share the Internet connection. Anypoint isn't working with the XP machine. Intel discontinued it so I want a different solution now.
Echostar/Starband says that if we used a router that it cannot be connected to the modem, that we need to network the computers and have them share the internet maybe via ICS.
Is there an alternative to the Anypoint? I really liked that USB setup. If not, then what is the best way to set up these two computers to share the Starband Internet connection? Wireless is a must for this setup and USB adapters is preferred.
