Having an issue with dial-up internet being shard over a network. There are two computers, on upstairs (Main) and one downstairs (Downstairs). Both are directly connected to each other via network cable. Yes it is crossover. The dial-up Internet access comes from the wall into the computer upstairs. It can be dialed and accessed on this computer no matter what. Here's the tricky part.
I want to get the downstairs computer to have access to this dial-up Internet whenever, as well as at the same time as the upstairs is running. So in a sense, the downstairs computer can dial the number for Internet and get access without having to go upstairs and connect it. Essentially I am trying to get a shared connection going, but nothing I suggest to them seems to work. I was troubleshooting over the phone, and everyone knows that's a lot harder than face to face.
Anyways, it can be done, it was done before. But the people have since forgotten how it was done. Both systems are running XP.
Here is a diagram illustrating the setup:
If you need more info from me, just ask, I will be more than willing to supply it. Thanks in advance.
