I was wondering if it is possible to set up internet access (broadband) across multiple users. I have four users, but can only access the internet on one. The page just says that I am not authorised to view the site. Is there any way around this? And I use Talktalk broadband if that helps, connecting through a Netgear router.

I did that, but it says there is an IP conflict with another user. Now what do I do?

Thanks for the help by the way

On each machine go to the command prompt
typein ipconfig Enter
this will give you a list of the ip address on each mahine.
Do you know if you are using DHCP ?

Are all the machines running xp ?
Did you go to the command prompt to run ipconfig or did you try to run it from the run command?
You have to run it from the command prompt

By the way: there is not more than one "machine" involved. It is users on the same machine. I don't know if this makes any difference?

Yes it does
Sorry I assumed you wanted to connect 4 computers to the internet.
To have the other users use the internet then you have to log in with admin rights and set up the users to use the internet.
With xp when you set up a program it ask who can use this program
Only you or whoever uses the computer
