I'm not sure that I understand, kindof.......
so i pluged the internet into my computer and installed it normally.
Does this mean that you have taken you Internet connection from the "Family computer" and moved the high speed modem to yours?
it worked fine for a day or two but the next time i tried running it it says ( if i go to status) bytes sent about 900 Bytes Received 1700
and i cant view any website it comes up with page cannot be displayed :S
Is this restarting the computer or leaving it on all the time?
there cant be any problems with the cabling otherwise i would be able to get onto the internet on this computer
i have tried pluging the internet into all my usb slots but none of them make any difference
I'm sorry if this sounds mean, but how can you connect your computer to the Internet with USB cable connections?
Are you trying to set up Internet Connection sharing so that both computers can access the Internet, or just the computer that you are using? Second, when you have the one cp connected to the Internet, you should be able to share the internet connection with the other cp if you have networked the cps together. Either with Cat 5 network cables through a router or hub. We might need more info from you first before we can help you.
