2 computers 2 ethernet cards, one cable modem?
Is it possible to connect 2 computers, each with an ethernet card to a Motorola Cable modem from @home without paying for more than one IP address?
you need 2 NIC's in the system hooked to the cable modem, and 1 in each other system. Then get sygate software. then you can share your cable modem on all systems.
There is a program called winproxy that is easy to set up and easy to administer.
The software is written by ositis, and you can download it from the web and use it for 30 days free.
the config is simple. setup one machine to be a server. connect the cable modem to this one. give it an internal ip address. assign all the other workstations an ip address in the same range, and set the browsers to connect through a lan. it will ask for the ip address of the machine you set up as the server and the software does the rest.
if you have any more questions I would love to help.
Would It work if I hooked the cable modem into a hub and connected all the computers to the hub? Would I still need all that other software?
Try NAT32 as your proxy for the computer.
The program is fairly easy to set-up and the BBS at that site is fairly responsive for problems.
The website will walk you through the set-up and installation. Try this.

Yes you could use a hub and no software but:
If you connect your cable modem to the hub uplink port, and your computers to the other ports it works but all computers need the same computer name and you wont be able to share files.
