    how do i do this?

    i currently have a network set up with a Linksys cable/dsl router with a 10/100 network switch and i set it up to share files and a printer

    but how do i set it up so that both users can use the 56k line at the same time

    ouch, it would take you 5 min to load google if you're both on at the same time...

    if your router doesn't have a way to hook up an external modem (serial port), then you'll have to set up one of the comps for 'internet connection sharing'

    Some routers even have a direct phone line connection for a back-up dial up connection if the DSL fails, but it's not that common.

    Try closeing all open IE windows as well as any other internet useing programs, and re-open them.

    If that doesn't do it, click 'Detect Network settings' when you get the default IE 404

    If that doesn't work Go to Start > Run and type this: ipconfig /renew

    Oh and make sure you have disabled all of the functions of your Router. You want it functioning as nothing more than a switch.

    I have the exact same setup. I am running at 56k at the moment (upgrading to ADSL as soon as moving into new house ) I have both computers hooked up to the router. Since I don't like the interface with WinXP internet I just run a proxy on the computer that has the 56k connection. The configure the other computers to use the net. The proxy program I use is AnalogX Proxy, you can get it here http://www.analogx.com/contents/down...work/proxy.htm
