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."
Advice 2 : How to connect two computers through a router
In order not to pay the provider for the creation of multiple access points to connect computers to the Internet, use the connection via the router (the router). General settings the routerand almost the same for all models.
Get the router you need model, do you wish he would wireless interface Wi-Fi (which is useful for connecting laptops) or not. However, you can buy with your normal routerω and a separate Wi-Fi module (USB module or PCI card). If you don't need that, you may be quite normal routerand multiple LAN ports.
Look at routere WAN port and connect it to the cable that connects to the Internet. Connect one of the computers and the router to the mains.
Set the access point in the routerE. in the browser Enter IP address router (for example 192.168.1.1), enter the factory default username and password. And default username, and password will be the word "admin" (do not forget then to change them). Logging in to install the routerand set the recommended ISP settings, with the note:— data transfer type must match the one used by your service provider;— the password to access the routerfrom after the replacement must be complex enough;— IP address of the computer should be different from the IP addresses of a routera;— installation of static and dynamic IP addresses on the router should be agreed with the provider and comply with the manufacturer's recommendations.
Restart the router after settings. Check whether the connected computer access to the Internet. Connect to the routerfrom a second computer using a different IP address, and writing the route on a router. Please note: the mask must be the same.
If the routerhas a wireless interface Wi-Fi or you have purchased a separate adapter (which you will need to pre-install the drivers and software), you can connect two computer between them and thus.
Check whether the module is active Wi-Fi on the second computer. If not, then right-click on its icon in the taskbar and select "Connect". Check whether the Internet connection on the second computer.
Advice 3 : How to combine two computers into the network through a router
Routers and routers are used for combining multiple devices in the local network. In addition, this network equipment is used for simultaneous connection of computers to the Internet.
You will need
- - Network cables.
If you want to create a home local network, you will need to properly configure the router. Connect its network equipment to AC power. Purchase two network cables are straight wire. With their help, connect the computers to the LAN ports of the router. Remember that each PC must be a free network card.
Turn on the router and computers. On one of the PC start the Internet browser. Open the user manual to your network hardware and figure out standard IP address for this device. Enter a value in the url field of the browser. Press the Enter key.
After logging into the web interface of your router settings to open the LAN menu. Select the appropriate parameters of the device. Activate the DHCP function and Firewall to facilitate the setup of computers. Save, your settings. Restart the router. To do this, click the corresponding button in the settings menu or just unplug the equipment from the mains for a while.
Reset the network adapters on both computers. Click "start" and select "Network connections". Go to the list of available network connections. Open the properties of the network card that is connected to the router. Highlight "Internet Protocol TCP/IP".
Check the box next to "Obtain an IP address automatically". If using this router, the computer to access external resources, select the item "Obtain DNS server address automatically". Click Ok to save the settings and close the dialog. Wait until the network adapter will get a new IP address.
Similarly configure the network card of the second computer. It should be noted that when working with Windows Vista and 7 you need to change the TCP/IPv4.
