I have two netgear FA310TX Network cards based on a DEC chipset
installed in my computer. Under NT, I have installed both cards, and
enabled one card to connect to the cable modem and the other card to
connect to my lan, and am using a NAT program to allow others in my
lan to access the internet. So no problems under NT.
Under 98, I have the exact same setup, and everything registers
properly under the TCPIP protocols for both of my network cards. I
can internally ping all of my computers on the LAN but cannot reach
the internet, although all the settings are exactly the same as NT
using winipcfg. The card for cable modem uses DHCP (the IP address is
essentially static based on a preassigned computer name) and the card
for my internal net uses private static IP addresses.
I have tried entering in the correct static IP's for my cable modem
network card but that does not work as well.
Anyone else have this problem? Do I need to do something to use two
network cards under 98? I assume 98 can support two network cards
although I have no experience with this. Just everyone is
recommending all these NAT programs for 95/98 to share cable modem
with their networks.
Who has actually gotten this to work under 98? I have so much stuff
installed under 98 that I am thinking I just need a clean install for
it to work properly, if anyone has actually used it...
