slackware internet sharing


Hello
I have 2 pcs:
Windows XP
Slackware 10.0
But my problem is: When one is connected to the internet, the other can't connect to the internet.
I have an ethernet modem connected to my hub, and both pcs connnected to the hub.
I have Windows XP configured as pc2, and slackware 10.0 does automaticly pc1.
So does anyone know how i can surf on the internet with both computers at the same time?
Thanx Hylke

you should probably connect the modem to one of the machines, add a second nic to the box, connect it to the hub then configure that machine to share internet access. then configure the other machine to look to the "internet gateway" which will be the machine w/the access shared.
good luck.

it will depend on your isp. you'll need to check with them. you may have to purchase another ip address. i believe there are a few isp's that allow for multiple connections, however, w/the method i described you only need one.
good luck.

When he says ISP he means Internet Service Provider. The company who gives you your connection (IP address). Your provider may not give you more than one IP. I am sure that this is fairly standard. But by routing one box through the other, you can share that single IP.

Thanks.
But is it possible to do that with a hub and not a router?

if your isp will supply you w/another ip address, your current configuration will be fine, as i stated before you will probably have to purchase it. other wise you'll have to share this connection. the cheapest way to get to that end would be one extra nic, and patch cable. no need to buy a router, one of the computers will act as a router. hope that clears it up for you.
good luck.
