    Hope someone can help with this query i have, im trying to get my pcs to link via a ethernet hub, but i cant seem to get it to work.

    On my network connections on my main pc, i have 2 cards, 1) Local Area Connection 2 3Com 3C900B-TPO Ethernet Adapter with ive enabled ICS ?(which is where the cable modem plugs in) and 2) NETGEAR FA312 Fast Ethernet Adapter card which is local connection and this then goes out to my Hub, in which my other 2 pcs are connected by. Is this the right way round ??
    and should the 3com one be shared, as if i share the other connection i loose the net connection completly on the main pc.

    Also on the back of the hub thier are 6 sockets, one labelled s-uplink, s-normal then all the rest are defult, is thier a particaller order the cables should be pluged in ? ie : the one comming out of the main pc with the cable modem connection ??

    Many thx for any advice anyone can give, this is driving me nuts as ive had it all working fine before i reformatted :(

    Plug your cable into the regular ports. The uplink is used for connecting a hub to a hub. Not sure what that S Normal means. Might be something specific to the brand of hub.
