Default Re: AOL networking

well ive never tried sharing an connection with a provider that doesnt use a standard TCP/IP base.

they do not use a stanrd dialer and since it is a combo of a browser and a dialer you may need to have the aol browsers in each computer and thats apain he borwser isnt very stable

but you can right click on the connection and share it

Internet connectivity setup for windows xp:::::::

go to "network connections"
go to the connection
make sure that it has gotten the right IPs if it is setup as defualt for DHCP
if not you may have to statically assign an IP
do this by right clicking on that connection and going to properties,
now go to TCP/IP protocol
then click properties.
now go to the address section and enter the values that you need.
(for help on this go to the router setup on linksys network everywhere routers or linksys in genreal go to the IP confi address and then look at the settings there and the IP range)
then you'll enter these addresses in there:
for example if my router had the IP of:
your IP address Id select would be:
the subnet mask is inputted for you:
the defualt gateway is your router's IP. which in this case would be
and then look for the DNS servers on your routers setup....
to make this easier linksys gives you a setup cd!!!
To get online with Internet explorer you'd go to your internet explorer properties and go to connections, then lan settings,
there you'd check the "automatic settings" checkbox and click ok.
then click ok to close the rest.
to share files all you would need to do is to right click on "my computer" and go to computer name and choose a workgroup name for your home network shoose soemthing creative and easy to remember keep it short.
then do the same on teh other computers!
next after work group configuration right click on teh folder(s) you wish to share and go to the properties page and go to teh sharing tab and click "I want to share this folder..." and then click ok.
Now youve shoudlheve gotten the folder shared and your network should be up and running
I fyou need more information pelase let me know!
