I've got the popular Linksys 4-port Cable/DSL sharing router. Sorry I don't
have the P/N at my fingertips.
I have the router between my Win98 SE desktop machine and my (Time-Warner)
Motorola cable modem. I can access the internet via this desktop computer
with no problems.
I have a Win95 notebook connected to this desktop machine using Proxim
Symphony wireless network cards. I use Win98's Internet Connection Sharing
(ICS) to give internet access to the notebook. Without the router, this
works fine. However, with the router in the loop, the laptop has not
internet access. If I take the router back out of the loop, the laptop can
see the internet again without a hitch.
Symphony (the makers of my wireless card) want me to buy their wireless
access point, so they don't support other internet connection sharing
solutions, such as proxy software and Win98's ICS. So I don't expect much
help from them.
I've waited on hold for Linksys without reaching a human. I haven't sent
them any e-mail yet. I didn't find any answers on their site or elsewhere on
Can anyone help me with this?
