- Network hub network cables.
Start a network with the selection of the server computer. It needs to have a sufficient capacity to handle the flows of information passing through it to other computers or laptops. Another important requirement is to have a second network adapter.
Connect to the selected computer cable Internet connection. Configure access to the Internet for this device.
Purchase a network hub (switch). It is necessary in order to ensure the connection of the other computers or laptops with a computer-server.
Connect the hub with a second network adapter in your computer and other devices on the future network.
Open the settings of the Internet connection on the host computer. Select the tab "Access". Open Internet access to local network using hub. After applying the settings, the IP address of the second network adapter must be set to 192.168.0.1.
Turn on the other computers in the local network. Open the control center network and sharing on one of them. Go to properties of LAN connection. Go to "Internet Protocol TCP/IP" and open its properties. The screen will display a window containing five major fields.
In the first field enter 192.168.0.2. Press the Tab button. Verify that the system automatically gave the subnet mask for this device. Press again the Tab button. Enter in this field the IP address of the first computer. Repeat the last step for the following fields. Save the settings.
Repeat the previous step for all other computers. In this regard, each time changing the last digit of the IP address. If you did everything correctly, all computers will have access to the Internet. Provided of course that the first computer is turned on.
Advice 2: How to configure Internet via LAN
If at least one computer in a small LAN connected to the Internet, means of OS Windows, you can arrange Internet access for the entire network. For this sistemnym block, which plays the role of a server, you need to install at least one network adapter that is connected to other computers in the local network.
If your network only two computers, you will need to combine them in a network cross-over cable is twisted pair, which with the two ends connected to the connectors RG-45 crosswise. Such a connection requires that the contacts of one connector of the network card, is responsible for receiving signals, connected with contacts of another network card responsible for the transmission and Vice versa. If computers in your network more than two, you'll need a hub or a switch for integration into a network. The computers connect to the switch directly. Patch cords, compressed cross or directly, sold in computer stores.
You now need to configure the host PC. In the "control Panel", open the folder "Network and connect to the Internet". Click the right mouse button on the icon to the "external" adapter call drop-down menu. Choose the option "Properties" and go to the tab "Advanced". Check the box "allow others to use the connection...". If desired, allow other users to control sharing by ticking the relevant box. Click OK.
Answer "Yes" to the warning about changing IP addresses. The "internal" network adapter, which connects the control computer with a networkYu, has a static network address 192.168.1.1. If inside the network one of the computers plays the role of an FTP or WEB server in the section "Shared access", activate the "Settings" button. In the services list, select the protocols to be used within the network.
If you want to create a custom service, click Add. In the new window, enter the service description, the IP address or the name of the computer on which it is running, port numbers, and Protocol type that will be used by the service.
The Protocol DHCP is running on the control computer automatically assigns network addresses to computers on the local network. The disadvantage will be that the network would be inoperable when the server is turned off. To avoid this, you can assign client computers to a static IP address manually. Go to "control Panel" and open the icon network connections. Click to open the context menu on the icon "local area Connection" right click and select "Properties".
In the Components section, select "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)" and activate "Properties". If you want to set the IP address manually, choose "Use the following IP address". You can use an address range of 192.168.0.2 – 192.168.0.254. The address must be unique for each computer on the network. The subnet mask value of 255.255.255.0 assign. In the field "default gateway" enter the server network address 192.168.1.1.
Enter 192.168.1.1 for the item "Use the following DNS addresses". Click "Advanced" and go to the tab DNS. In the field "DNS suffix for this connection" enter MSHOME.NET. Check the box "Register this connection's address".
Start Internet Explorer and go to menu "Service". Choose "Internet options" and go to the tab "Connections". Press "Set" then, to continue the work Next. Select "Connect to the Internet" and click "Next". Choose "Set up my connection manually" and command "Next" to continue. Select "Connect using a broadband connection", again click "Next" and next screen "Ready."
