My problem is not directly about Linux....but more related to
networking...oh well anyway....here it is..
I have 3 computers, and they are networked together like this..
[ ] -----------[ ] -------------[ ]
B A C
The middle one (A) being the one with the modem and I have IP-Masq
setup so that the other 2 can connect to the net thru it.
The cables used are both 20m cables, with BNC connectors.
However the network is SLOOOW....I dual boot my system with Win98
(sorry guys..I know it sux...but there are more games ma...Linux still
rulez!!) And when playing something like Quake2 over the network,
either computer A or B (when played with only 2 computers) will
disconnected and then exits the current deathmatch. It happens with
other games too, not just Quake2.
And browsing on the net is quite slow too...
So I suspect that it is the way I connect the computers? Or are the
cables too long? (but read somewhere that those cables I used can be
I want to connect it in a ring...(will that helps??)
B ----------- A ---------------C
How do I do that? I have tried just connect the cables WITHOUT the
terminators, but it doesn't work...
Plssss help me!
