OK, I have a Windows 98SE machine with a cable modem and a hub. The cable modem is plugged into the hub, the 98 machine is plugged into the hub and my Linux machine (Mandrake 9.1) is plugged into the hub.
Here's what happens:
I can get on the internet fine on the 98 machine but if I get on the internet on the Linux machine it steals the connection from the 98 machine. I can use the internet in Linux until I close my browser and then it stops working too. I can no longer use the internet on the 98 machine until after I shut it down, turn off the modem for 30 seconds and then restart everything.
Am I stealing the IP address or something? What do I need to change? Thanks a ton...
