Hoem network with router?



Hey. Over this upcoming weekend, I will be setting up my home network to extend beyond the two computers. I will now be using a router [built in hub]. There will be 4 computers. How would I go about doing this? Two of the computer [3 total] will be running win XP, the other being WIN ME. I have a cable modem connection, which will now run into the router. I will then have the router run seperate lines into each computer [CAT 5 CABLES]. Should this work fine? Any ideas?

Just plug them in and make sure all IP information is set to obtain automatically. Also check the workgroup names so they are the same and computer names are different if you are sharing files as well. Also if sharing files ensure that any 95/98/ME computers are not running NetBEUI and that NetBIOS over TCP/IP is enabled.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
