Internet Connection...

I have a linux box with a nic card and then a winbox connected to a winmodem with 2 nic cards (to connect winbox with linux) and to connect to winmodem. How can I access the internet connection? Do I have to share it and use samba?

the two boxes are connected through a hub and not by a crossover!

I suggest that you bridge the two NICs in windows and it should work. No need for samba at all unless you want to access windows' shared folders from linux.

I did create a bridge between the nic card that is connecting the winbox to the network and the nic card that is used to connect the winbox to the internet!. I set linux nic card dhcp. But I still cannot access the internet What can be the problem ?
