Annexxion having a bad day?

I did read what you wrote. Apparently you didn't read what I wrote.

You can not "split" your internet connection as your example unless you are getting two ips from your ISP. You wouldn't be asking the question you are if you knew the answer to that.

ICS is how you use one pc to get another pc on the internet if you don't want to purchase a router.

Arrogance and ignorance make a deadly combination.

The only thing wrong with Wanderer2's first post is that you would not need a wireless router. Usually you can find one for less money than a wired only router, but didn't want you to get too upset. :rolleyes:

Anexxion the usb link talked about a propriety program to link two pcs via a usb network. You read that then asked if you could solder usb cables together. The wasn't the point of the link.

You appear focused on the physical. You don't solder cables.. ever. If you want two usbs you put in a usb hub between the modem and the two pcs. At about $10 that sure beats destroying three cables in trying to solder them together.

Of course that doesn't get you a ip address for each pc so whatever one gets on first will be the only one on. Your attempt to get another ip address will result in your ISP enforcing their policies which may include termination of your account or additional charges levied against you.

Have fun!

splitter basicall will be the hub. since you already have router, conn. the hub to the router, then 2 pcs will be conn. to hub.

I bet I'm not the only one who missed any mention of you having a router before post #11. :( An ethernet hub or switch (better) should do the job nicely. And I'm sure that Wanderer2 would have posted the same info about 23 hours ago if you had mentioned your router.
