The easiest way would be to put 2 network cards in the MAIN computer and use CROSSOVER cables to link the other 2 computers to it.

Then link the Broadband modem to the MAIN computer using the USB connection.
Setup a Home Network using the wizard on the MAIN computer and the other 2 Comps will be Bridged to the main one.

Conclusion: All three computers will be able to use the Broadband connection at the same time @ 100mbps. (If using 10/100 cards)

This is the setup I have been using for the last 4 months with no problems and keeps the kids happy too.

Systems: AMD 1400, AMD 1800, Sony 750Mhs Laptop, Cable Modem 600K

I know that by using that method, each time your host computer is off, your other computers can not access the internet.

and i thought you will need additonal ip addresses if you use that method???

Yes the Host computer has to be on all the time, this is a small inconvenience set against the price of a router (75 +)

The Network Bridge takes the IP Address and the 2 computers share the Bridge.

This is all setup automatically by the network wizard in Windows XP Professional.

oh, then i have just wasted my damn 80 bucks then!!! man, i hope you have been here earlier, lol

and one more things is that if you're using a router, then you don't have to install two ethernet card in the main computer...

anyways, is the crossover cable is the same as a cat5 cable?
