Is it possible to connect 2 PCs together to log on the Net thru LAN card in one PC without having to switch it on to Browse on the 2nd PC.
The PCs are located at 2 different rooms.

No. Since you'll have to have two network interfaces in the hosting PC, this has to be switched on in order for the second one to be able to get through to the www connection. Usually you also have to log on to the ISP and this would be done through the hosting machine so it would have to be switched on anyway.

Is there any way without taking two seperate connections to each PC.
I could use any PC at a time to Browse the Net.

Here is how I did it:

The hosting PC had one network interface connected to the www and one interface to my local network. The second PC only had one interface connected to the local network. The host then connects to the www and both PC's will be able to access the www. The first one will be working directly towards the www, while the second one will connect through the first one using netwok adress translation (win2000 has built in support for this).

There are other ways around it, using routers, but that can get quite expensive. It all depends on how you connect to the net.

My computers are also configured as Staffan's, because no.1 is always on.

At my parents house, there's no computer which is always on so I build a network there. Each computer is connected to a router with switch, the router has the ISP settings and is always on and connected.

A router is a good solution to your problem. I don't think they're expensive, at least not in The Netherlands (less than 100euro), but I don't know about this in India. I advice you to search for a router with build in switch...

Kind regards,

Would that work for dial-up, Jeroen?

Yes Anders, there are routers available with build in ISDN dial-up function. I expect there are also dial-up routers for analog internet connections, but I'm not sure.

In general a router is connected to a modem, it does not replace one. However, as I said before, some routers have an integrated modem as well as there are modems with build in router-function (then you only need a switch to share internet).

Just get a router for your internet connection...they are so dirt-cheap these days. That way you don't have to worry about leaving one computer on.
