    Arrow Setup Home network with only one LAN card using BSNL Modem.

    First the original article....

    Chip.in • View topic - Setup LAN WITH LAN card in only one Computer!

    I tried to connect 2 PCs using this method, but was unable to transfer files between them although I was able to ping each other. One was having a NTFS and other was having FAT32 partition.

    I had disabled all the firewalls and even enabled Simple File Sharing.

    Is there any other method to network 2 PCS using the BSNL modem ?

    No, I didn't set any value for the gateway.

    And, what's your opinion about this method since you're one of the most active & knowledgeable members here ?

    Lol, i am no one considering the pros who are *hiding* in this forum

    The procedure stated by him can be implemented in any router. It is how people use to connect and share internet on two PCs using one router.

    Since he has only one ethernet and USB port, he did it that way. Usually routers come with separate ethernet outs and PCs can be connected to these ports and the same file sharing/internet sharing can be done.

    I'm also in the same boat with a Siemens C2110. But, if I connect the two PCs is there any problem in using the Internet simultaneously ?

    One guy told me that you should not use net at the same time in a Type-I modem.

    Please dont fall for rumors. There isnt any problem in configuring the modem to work with two PCs. There is no problem accessing internet simultaneously in both the PCs.

    Bandwidth allocation will be done dynamically as with the need of the individual PCs. But in some routers (like the one which i posses) bandwidth for individual PCs can be set in the router. I am unsure whether it can be done on your modem too.

    U can use Netlimiter to throttle the bandwidth in XP.

    Netlimiter is a bandwidth shaping tool.

    Checkout NetLimiter - The Ultimate Bandwidth Shaper for the software
