Hi,

You can use Windows's Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) which is available in Win98se and up. Look up 'ics' in Windows Help for details on installing/configuring. The only draw back to using a software solution is that the computer physically connected to the DSL modem needs to be running in order for the other systems to access the internet.

If this is not what you want, then look into buying a DSL router which acts like the ICS host, therefore internet access is always available since the DSL modem is connected to this router.

That's great! Grin

You will find the DSL router to be a better internet connection sharing solution than using ICS because you don't have to have a host computer turned on for the other systems to access the internet!
