    So do you have both of these computers connected to the same DSL line through a router? Or are you unplugging the ethernet cable from one and plugging it into the other whenever you want to use the other machine?

    Also what DSL modem do you have, and does your service use PPPoE?

    Do you have the hub connected to the modem and then the PC's conected to the hub? Or is it like Wiggo's drawings in this thread:

    If the hub connected to the modem and the PC's conected to the hub, that should never have worked. At least not well anyway. Especially if you're trying to connect with PPPoE on 2 separate computers at the same time. Only one PPPoE per modem. Set it up the way that Wiggo's drawings have it.


    If you do in fact have it setup the way that Wiggo's drawings are, what connection sharing software are you using on the main machine?

    saying you have 2 accounts to get connected suggests that you can get support for this from you ISP

    i havent had any experience with a multi-account connection, i thought it just meant u were allowed to use 2 ppl behind the modem, i would assume u get a pro-dsl modem and use the VPN connection to the pro modem to get onto the internet, and the pro modem does the actual internet connection.

    in which case that means the modem would have an IP and the two machines are setting up a VPN line to the dsl modem (that diagram that "shouldn't work" can actually work)

    i gues i'm saying, go ask your ISP, but also, what model DSL modem?
