Internet connection sharing


Currently two computers running mandrake 9.2 in my house get their internet connection from my brothers XP machine with its crap modem. A fourth machine is going to be added to the network, this machine has mandrake 9.2 on it and has a modem which seems to be faster then my brothers one. When I previously tried internet connection sharing in mandrake 9.0 the "server" could no longer use the internet connection.

What I want to know is if the fourth machine was to share its internet connection, It won't be able to use its own modem connection? and If I change its connection to a Lan connection and the gateway was itself would it then be able to connect?

It will be able to use the modem, it's a matter of configuration.

"and If I change its connection to a Lan connection and the gateway was itself would it then be able to connect?"

Of course. In this case, I would recommend you remove the modem off your pc.
