problem with the local network having the same domain name as the public network

Q: problem with the local network having the same domain name as the public network

HI,

I have installed server 2003 on a small network and created a domain that is the same as the public domain name (ie the companies website).

This is now causing a problem because when i type in the public address (for example www.company.com) it is trying to resolve it locally - because the local domain name is also company.com.

Does anyone know if there is a way to get round this problem?

Many thanks in advance

Dave

Preferred Solution: problem with the local network having the same domain name as the public network

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: problem with the local network having the same domain name as the public network

add 'local.' to the internal domain or change it altogether.

Your public domain should not have any connection into your private infrastructure,
but you may have references from private->public; not very common.

Hi,

I have a few domain client computers running Windows 7 Pro SP1 (both x86 and x64) which on daily basis have problem with network profile. For some reason network profile changes from domain to public, blocking myriad of ports and making computer isolated
from the rest of network for many services. MS has some hotfix (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2524478) and I found x86 version
also. Today one client had problems, I solve it temporarily via PS remoting and afterwards I tried to install .msu but with no luck - there was an error saying that update package was not applicable. What might be the cause of this error? Also is there any
other better solution for this network problem since it has become very annoying. Fortunately PowerShell remoting is very capable of doing virtually anything but in this case problem happens all over again.

Thanks in advance!

I have a domain network with about 25 XP workstations. Currently they are all local admin users. We want to try to stop them loading unapproved software and other junk. Can I remove the local admin rights and just make them a standard user? If they are set as a standard user will the Windows Updates still install without entering an admin password?? Also, what about Java and Adobe updates? What is the best way to handle this?

Hi:

When I click on the wireless icon in the taskbar it shows connected to my home network and an unknown public network. However, in the network sharing center it shows both networks connected to the same SSID which I find strange. How do I get rid of the public unknown network? Also in windows explorer when I expand the 'Network' list it lists my own PC name on the network and also under media devices. Could these be the source of the public unknown network? Although my wireless is working fine,
this thing just bugs the hell out of me .

Thanks in advance.

I think a picture of the problem might help because I'm not completely sure about this.

It sounds like you may have inadvertently set up a wireless guest network when you set up your router.

Sometimes this is automatic on certain routers but there should be a way to disable it from the routers set up page.

Since they are both using the same SSID I'm assuming this guest network is set up outside the regular network so as to keep anyone connecting from accessing your data.

Hello all,
I have tried all the similar solutions to my problem but non eworks.

I have just installed WIndows 7 Home 64bit.
Wireless works (slooooooow).
The cable from my Billion router/modem is recognised but does not work.

In network and sharing centre I can see Wireless as Home Network and cable as:

Unidentified network - Public Network (no link = can't change it).
The 4 TCP/IPv4 is set at automatic. Even if I put the Billion default address 192.168.1.254 and subnet and gateway nothing.

Tried going into ipconfig and it gives me a 169.254.176.23 (=no internet connection then, but I knew that).

The wireless IP is correct at 192.168.1.2

From what I have understood from all the fora I have to change the network from Public to Home.

How do I do it?

I would be very grateful for any sort of help.

Dumb question here: I have just one computer. When I connect to the internet via dial-up, my computer says I'm part of a network and it wants me to choose between Public Network and Home Network.

I'm assuming the "network" detected is my dial-up connection and that I should choose "Public Network". Am I assuming correctly, or is my network type selection irrelevant to my dial-up settings.

Thanks.

A:Home Network, Public Network & Dial-Up

The security is different between the two. Unless you are out looking for wifi hot spots "public", then you should use the Home networking feature, although the workgroup may work better for you.

Hi,
One domain user recently can't see network drives and use printer. When you join a domain it automatically maps those drives and ads that printer, and it did, but now it is all gone. You can't even see disconnected drives in My computer. I am able to ping
those drives, but that's it. And this occurs only on one computer on one user. If log in to different user on that computer everything is fine and if I log in with that user on different computer it also works. Tried looking for disabled services, but couldn't
any that would be turned off from the most important (Workstation, Network location awareness, Network list service). Any suggestions?

This sounds really noobie of me but is it possible to improve local network transfer speed by adding a 2nd network card. I was planning to connect one exclusively for lan transfers and another one hooked to a separate wireless router.

Right now only a maximum of 3 users can stream SD videos off the PC before it gets a little choppy.

The pc in question runs on windows 7 and it's board has built in gigabit, I happen to have a spare gigabit card.

A:Will adding a 2nd network card improve local network transfer speed

That won't really help the way you are describing the problem, although adding access points will help with streaming to wireless devices.

Although there is a setting in Group Policy that allows you to use two connections at the same time, I don't believe it will help in this situation.

I've done many HD movie streaming tests on my system.

I can stream from my media PC to at least 7 other machines at the same time, 4 wired, 3 wireless, plus my TV, and have no problems at all, no skipping, no freezing, even with the same movie in the same place or with 8 different movies at once, my TV is connected to my media center PC so counts as the 8th one.

This is Gb LAN, and 300Mbps wireless but even the 65Mbps limited laptop has no problem.

I'm not really sure why you are seeing these limitations but it may be the router.

If updating the drivers does not fix the issue, to narrow down the prime cause of the crash let’s put the computer in a clean boot state and troubleshoot the issue.

Putting your system in clean boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. If yes, you may go ahead and disable or uninstall the same.

Follow the below steps to put your computer in clean boot state:

1. Log on to the computer by using an account that has administrator rights.
2. Click Start, type msconfig.exe in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER to start the System Configuration Utility. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
3. On the General tab, click Selective Startup, and then click to clear the Load startup items check box. (The Use Original Boot.ini check box is unavailable.)
4. On the Services tab, click to select the Hide all Microsoft services check box, and then click Disable all.
5. Click OK, and then click Restart.

The above steps would put the computer in clean boot state.

You should be able to tell if an installed program is causing this problem or not.

You might try running the sfc/scannow command to see if there are any file integrity problems.

Hi, I've had this for some time, but I rebooted my PC to get a message on the right side of my screen (Windows 8) asking me if I'd like to join some network. I stupidly clicked it without actually thinking about it (I had previously actually tried to connect my Windows 7 laptop to my desktop and failed and was thinking this was that). But after clicking yes I had second thoughts and wondered exactly what I had accepted. Did it open my PC/Internet to hacking or something? I've attached a pic of my Network Connections and Network Sharing Information (with personal information blacked out). Have I done something silly? Is this dangerous? If so, how do I undo? And what's with the Network 3 thing? Why isn't it Network 2? My internet works fine (with the occasional hick-up, simply requiring fixing with the usual tools). Are there any problems? Should I be worried?

Hi folks

Hope somebody can help me here.
I'm in charge of our present network here at work, however i'm no geek (no offense), only just manage to somehow keep it running
The network is setup with a Domain server (NT4) and all of the PC's that are in it are either XP Pro SP1 or SP2.
My problem is actually allowing laptop PC's outside of the Domain (in say a Workgroup) to use printers inside of the Domain.
PCs with the original version of WinXP Pro SP1 installed can be seen and also the printers by the Laptops.
PCs with WinXP Pro SP2 installed can be seen but I am unable to see the printers. from the Laptops, WHY???
Laptops are connecting via a wireless connection and are able to surf the internet.
Hope this makes sense to someone and you are able to help me here.

Thanks inadvance

To check whether it is the problem with my modem, I have tested using my wireless connection and it seems to work fine. I've also ping 127.0.0.1 and got the response immediately.

A:Problem with Local Area Network

The symptoms are you have either a driver issue, bad cable, bad port on the router, or a bad NIC.

I'd start by reloading the NIC drivers, if that doesn't do it, use a new cable and a new port on the router. If all else fails, you'll need a new NIC. Since that would be part of the motherboard, let's hope it's not the NIC.

When transfering files via Windows Explorer between the Windows PC's I get about 60-70 MB/s which is good. However when I transfer via FTP I only get about 11-12 MB/s, looks like speed is limited to 100mbit.

Also transfers in Windows Explorer between Ubuntu PC and any of the Windows PC's is limited in the same way (100mbit).

Hello,

I work in a company with almost 80 Windows 7 computer and another 200 or 250 Windows Xp computers in the domain, sometimes when users try to copy information to the File Server (Windows Server 2008) or to the network, the copy starts but never finish. It just stay there and the only way is to force the shut down to the computer and start over copying files one by one, this only happens in Windows 7 computers and does not always happen but it is very common

Is this a Know issue in Windows 7? What can be happening in our Network??

If I try to do the same copy locally on the computer the copy ends successfully, the problem only hapends when the copy is to the network (Just Windows 7 computers, Xp computers works fine)

Thank you all.

A:Windows 7 Domain Computers Problem with copies to network drives

I would like to suggest you update the network card driver and run Windows Update to install all the important updates first.

If it does not work, I also would like to suggest you disable the automatic adjustment for the TCP window size on the network to check the issue.

1. Click Start, click All Programs, and then click Accessories.
2. Right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.

3. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

4. Exit the Command Prompt window.
5. Restart the computer.


Thanks,

I'm running into a problem with connecting to network drives over a VPN. The common difference is whether or not the computer is part of the domain by default.

1) Computers connecting to VPN using local account on computer: Prompted for a domain login when attempting to use the network drives. Can get in.

2) Computers connecting to VPN using a domain account (but on another network): Unable to connect. Specific error changed based on below info.
A) Computer logged on and connected to an outside network. Never connected to domain network: Can't find folder error.
B) Connects to domain network at some point before connecting to an outside network and using VPN: Might be in use error, attached.

A:VPN Network Shared Drive Error Domain/Non-Domain Differences

Sounds more like the network the VPN connection puts you in has trouble making kerberos connections to domain controllers, but NTLM connections work fine (kerb might be blocked). The errors are likely bogus if you can get #1 to work - if the computer is connected to a domain it's going to want to use Kerb before NTLM, and if the machine still has (what it thinks is) a viable kerb ticket, it's going to try and validate that with a DC (to achieve auth), and if this fails, so does the connection.

This may not actually be the case, of course, but it sure has the symptoms of it.

Hello,

Yesterday i installed the Linksys BEFSR41 DSL router. The connection to the internet works from every port/switch (1 to 4). But the pc`s that are connected to the ports can't "see" eachother, so i can`t share files or printers. If i put another switch on a port of the linksys and i connect the pc`s to that switch then they "see" eachother and they can connect to the internet. But then i don`t use 3 ports of the Linksys :-(
What could be the problem? I think it should be a setting in the Linksys, i tried some but it didn`t work. Which setting could it be?

Greetz,

A:Connection Problem with local network Linksys BEFSR41v4

May be problem with subnet mask

Hi ,

As for my knowledge,
If you want to connect to another system on your router , all the connections should have the same "Sub net Mask"

You can see the subnet mask assigned using start -> run -> cmd

and "ipconfig/all"

I have two network cards in my PC. One of them connects to the internet while the other connects to my home network.

The issue is enabling public folders for the home network in "Network and Sharing Center" enables public folders for the public network also. In other words Windows grants permission to people on the internet to access my c:\users\Public folder.

Disabling public folders under public network settings disables public folders for the home network also, preventing people on my local area network from accessing my PC.

Refer this screenshot if you don't get my problem: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/6878074832/

In other words Windows grants permission to people on the internet to access my c:\users\Public folder.

A:Cannot turn off "Public Folder Sharing" for public network

I think it's because you set up a Public Network as your first interface. Because of this it may not be possible to turn off the Public file sharing option.

You don't need to use both interfaces to share the wireless connection with your wife. You can do that with a single interface by just setting up a Home Network on one of the interfaces then sharing out from that interface using software to make it easier like Connectify.

I've got a machine running Windows 7 logged on the network domain but when I try to map a share to a machine on the network, but not registered on the domain I cannot connect (even though I have a local account on the networked machine).When attempting to connect Windows 7 prompts me for my connection credentials and it automatically fills in the domain name.  How can I connect to this network share using credentials that are local to that network share?

A:Logging in to Non-Domain Network Share from computer on Domain

When you say local credentials I assume you mean local on the "TestServer", not local on the Windows 7 box. Then you should be able to just type in TestServer\LocalAccount and the password (the domain you see should automatically switch to "TestServer")Also; have you tried mapping the drive using the IP address (i.e. \\xx.xx.xx.xx\TestShare)?

Atheros Wireless Adapter - AR5007EG & AR5007

Over the last couple of years we have been seeing a lot of problems with the above adapters, mainly concerning WPA and WPA2 encryption and mainly on windows Vista.
We have seen just a couple of issues on other windows operating system, windows XP and windows 7.

Windows XP:- A driver update has resolved the issue
Windows 7 :- No conclusive results for a fix

The wireless adapter gets an IP configuration, and shows as connected, but communication is non-existent or sporadic.

Log into the Router and disable the wireless security and see if you are now able to connect to the internet and surf OK.
Please post back a reply here, and let us know if that works or does not work.
If you post back the make and exact model of the router - we can advise how to disable the wireless security

Here are a number of possible solutions

--- 1) In Device Manager right click on the wireless adapter and "update driver."

--- 2) Download and install the latest wireless driver from your laptop manufacturer's web site support section,

If you post a reply here with the Make and EXACT model of your PC, along with the windows version you are running. we will see if we can find a link to the driver and will post a reply with the link here.

--- 3) On one occasion re-setting the router back to factory default and re-configuring the router settings has resolved the issue

--- 4) The majority of members, have now used the drivers from the atheros driver site, which has resolved the issue.

This will open another page for that particular adapter and that windows version.

Now click on the download button labelled " Click to Download " and wait, the file will download - you do not need to click on any other buttons to get the download started

Assuming that after all the above the wireless still does not connect to the internet, all I can suggest is to use wireless security of WEP or to get an external USB wireless card.

I have come accross a problem with a pc that sees every network as a Public Network, so it will not connect directly to a Broadband supplier. Is there any way to reset this without reinstalling the O/S?

Hi folks.  This is after doing an upgrade from Server 2008 to Server 2008 R2 mind you.  Not sure if that matters.  

I was having problems with RDPing to my Win7 clients so I checked that remote desktop was enabled.  When doing so I saw that it informed me that I had to allow rdp access in the firewall which I know had been done before.  After looking around I realized that my network profile had been changed to "Public".  I also noticed that my active network shows as "unauthenticated".  What does this mean and how can I fix this?  How did this happen?  Thanks.

A:Network shows as "Unauthenticated"....Changed my network profile to "Public"

How many DCs are there in the domain?
I suggest that you remove the Windows 7 computer from the AD, and exit the Windows 7 computer from domain. Then, re-join the computer to the domain. How does it work now?
If the issue persists, please temporary disable the firewall on both computers. Also, please check if Network Location Awareness service is enabled on the server and Windows 7 computers.Arthur Xie - MSFT

A:Homegroup Changes to Public Network

A homegroup is different from a network identified in the network and sharing center as a "home network." From context, you're talking about a home network rather than a homegroup. To rephrase your issue using normal terminology, network recognition on your Windows 7 PCs is misidentifying your home network when your Xbox is connected.

What happens if you plug your Xbox directly into your wireless router rather than bridging it through your PC? It shouldn't happen, but using bridge mode might be confusing your other Windows PCs.

WIN7 SP1, Comcast Cable (internet only), Motorola gateway, Ethernet Cable,
Onboard Realtek LAN, IPv6 disabled.

My IP address of 192.xxx keeps changing to 169.254.52.105 and to public network.
I tried manually setting IP in v4 properties but that doesn't work nor does modem refresh
or ipconfig /renew.

I used to use a Netgear wnda3100v2 but it kept losing the internet signal for no apparent reason so I went to the ethernet cable. Unfortunately I failed to see if the IP was changing at that time.
Any help will be appreciated.

A:Static IP Changes To Public Network

If you are connecting your PC to your Motorola cable modem directly (that is, not through a router), then your IP address should be assigned by the Motorola, which is assigned by your ISP.

I'm going to assume the second octet is 168 (192.168). If that is true....

This is a class C address (like 192.168.x.x), which are private addresses that cannot be used on the Internet.

Since it sounds like you are connecting to your Motorola directly, then you would not be using NAT, so there is no translation from the 192.168.x.x (LAN) address to the ISP assigned (WAN) address.

The 169.254 address is assigned as a "generic" (public) address when your computer cannot get an address from your DHCP server, router or modem.

At least, that's how it works here in Australia.

I would contact your provider and check with them as to the address that should be assigned.

If the second Octet is not 168, for example, your IP address is 192.0.1.0 - 192.167.255.255 then such addresses are valid for internet usage, but I would still contact your ISP.

Hello

I came home today and switched my Vista pc on to discover a yellow warning triangle on my network icon. This was showing as "Unidentified network"

I have had this problem before, and resetting the modem allowed me to connect to my usual "Home network"

After doing some research, i believe the issue is caused by a program called bonjour which comes with itunes. I have since disabled this, but i am still curious about this "Unidentified network"

It shows up directly beneath my normal home network in the network and sharing centre, and i am concerned as to what it is? e.g can other people access my network through this?

Thank you.
 

A:Unidentified public network?

I doubt it, I suspect it's just a network definition that doesn't have a connection, hence the error indication.

Nope, in doing so you're violating the rules of the network. Any work arounds would be a no no.

In supporting a Community Assocation I have the need to create a public network and a private one that shares the same internet connection. The way this is shaping up is:

Modom (dial up)
D-Link Router (DI-704 w/ serial port)

Public Network
16 Port Hub

Private Network
LinkSys Router (BEFSR41)
8 Port Switch (currently a hub)

Some devices will need to connect to the routers and the hubs/switchs because of location. (no big deal, I ***-u-me)

Currently I have the settings as:
D-Link (Public)
IP : 192.168.1.64
Range : 65 to 127
Default IP mask (Can't find one)

LinkSys (Private)
IP : 192.168.1.32
Range : 33 to 47
Default IP mask

When connected to the Private network, a PC cannot ping the public ones or get the Internet (I need both). The public ones have Internet access, can ping the LinkSys but no PCs (As it should be).

So what how should this work and what am I missing?

Subnetmask: 255.255.255.0
DHCP-server: disable

PC-Settings (Public)
Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)
Use the following fixed IP addresses: 192.168.1.65 (66, 67 etc. - 126)
Subnetmask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.64 (IP-address from your Router)
Use DNS Server address: 192.168.1.64 (IP-address from your Router)
Second DNS: leave blank or put in first DNS-server from WAN-part in Router

Reserve the IP address: 192.168.1.127 for the Linksys (Private)
which will plug into the D-Link
============================================================================

LinkSys (Private) connect to the D-Link router.
Router-setup WAN:
Protocol: Fixed IP
IP-address: 192.168.1.127
Subnetmask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.127

Subnetmask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.1.127 (IP-address from your Router)
Use DNS Server address: 192.168.1.127 (IP-address from your Router)
Second DNS: leave blank

============================================================================

Valid for both Routers:
Some System-settings (depending on your router)
Optional SNTP (time): e.g. 194.35.252.7 for UK/Ireland (GMT)
uPnP: disable
Dynamic routing: disable
Remote config: disable
Dynamic DNS: disable
Firewall: Block hacker attack: enable
Firewall: Block WAN request: enable
VPN: disable all settings unless you need it

PC-Settings (Public & Private)
Make sure all PCs are in the same WORKGROUP.
Enable File/Printer sharing if you wish (works only within local network)
Check individual printer(s) that they are shared as well (in printer-settings)
In the software firewall, enable/block the other PCs IP-address(es)

I am not 100% sure, but this should work.

Under "Advanced sharing settings", one can really turn off a lot of network sharing features to secure a computer.

The "Public folder sharing" switch allows one to turn off Public folder sharing, but people logged on to "this" computer can still access these folders. Does anyone know if this means *remote* login? If so, is there a way to deactivate this so that it is only accessible at the "console"? And by Public folder, does that mean a folder that is user-specific (and controlled by owning user), but open to the public? Or does it mean a file space "commons", accessible and controlled by all users?

The "Password protected sharing" switch allows one to restrict access to the computer to only those who have an account and password on the computer. Again, is there a way to ensure that access is only possible from the console?

A:Windows 7 Public network profile

It's probably best and most important to understand that access to shares (locally or across a network) are actually an aggregate of two seperate security settings defined in the properties of the individual file or folder being shared.
1. Share Permissions (for users comming at you from across the network) defined under the sharing tab in file and or folder properties.
2. NTFS Permissions (for users setting at the console) defined under the security tab in file and or folder properties.
When these two permissions are defined, they are combined and the most restrictive is what is actually applied to the share.
For years it has been a generally accepted practice to configure share permissions (Everyone = Full Control) and then use the NTFS Permissions to more granularly define explicitly who has access and how much access they have. I still consider this a good practice if for no other reason than it saves a lot of back checking between the two permission sets to make sure nothing is conflicting.
Additionally you need to understand that permissions can be applied to both individual users as well as groups and you need to consider this when a user is having problems accessing a file or folder to which he has explicitly been granted access. What group does he belong to, what permission does that group have to the same file or folder. If he has write access but the group he belongs to only has read access, then he will only have read access.
Here's a very good reference if you can suffer through it and learn it, you shouldn't have any permission problems going forward.
Good Luck

A:Make a Public Network Private?

I don't know if this will help, but go to your Network and Sharing Center, then you should see all of your connections. Then change whatever network you want from a Public location to a Home or Work network.

So this is my home pc that I run a private network on with my brothers computer and mine.. No idea now after a ran a tweak program I have public and private setup.


How do I just keep the private setting on rather then the public trash to? Also My jump drives no longer work on my computer but work on his.

Please help thanks!!

A:Check this out.. Private and public network?

go to the Network and Sharing Center and change your network type to "Home".

There are three types

Home, Work, and Public

The firewall has different policies for each.

I want my 3G phone to access my computer via the internet.

However I type the IP address of my computer which has IIS running. But this computer connects to the Internet through a NETGEAR Wireless Router.

I am not using the Local IP (192.168.0.1) to try and connect. I am using the ADSL IP number provided by my ISP. But it doesn't respond.

What am I doing wrong?

When I type http://localhost/ - I can get a webpage but not when I type in the correct external IP address I get the NETGEAR ROUTER CONFIGURATION LOGON Request

A:Windows 7 HP unidentified network is public

Update. This particular powerscript Change does change it to a "work" network. I still can't make any changes to it myself though. This fixes file sharing since a work network will permit this. From what I've read the fix has to be reapplied if the network gets recreated.

Sort of a "partial" solution but not exactly the one I was looking for.

I've got another machine on my network running xp pro and I'm sort of leaning towards making it my "ICS" machine to connect the cell access point to my local home lan. Then perhaps the xp hp box will see that the local lan connection has internet access and give me the option to set it as "home".

Also not my ideal solution as I'm assuming eventually I will have no xp machines and will be back revisiting this.

I am using Windows Vista Home Premium 32 Bit SP1 and McAfee Security Center. McAfee's firewall is turned on, and Windows Firewall is turned off, as Windows claims that it is not a good idea to run multiple firewalls at the same time. I am living in a college dorm. While in my dorm, I access the internet through the Ethernet jack in the wall. I have told Vista that the network is a public network. I have internet access, and when I view the Network, I do not see my computer. However, when I run Windows Media Player 11, my computer becomes visible as a "Media Device" with my computers name, even though I have Meida Sharing in WMP turned off. Is this a security risk? Is there some way to stop this from happening without denying WMP access to the internet so it can automaitcally get track information?

The network has been set as public.  How to change it to be private?  I suppose I used to be able to right-click somewhere and simply change it over.  However I can't find such option.
I try to disconnect it and re-connect it again.  Doing so I hope that it will ask what type of network to be set to but it won't ask again.
This is only Windows 8.1 Home system, not Professional.  So I don't have secpol.msc at my disposal.  Perhaps somebody can tell me where the regedit data setting is.
I do not want to change only the advanced sharing settings.

A:Public Service Network frustration

If you are limited to dial up speed there is nothing you can do to make that different.

Can't make a purse out of a sows ear.

Unless the ISP supports modem teaming which is where you can use two phone lines and two modems to combine them together for increased bandwidth. Most ISP's don't support this because they lose two modems and two lines for one user.

1x Host pc connects to internet through local connection 0, and share internet only to other pc's through
local connection 1, and local connection 2, ect.

2x client pc (to be selectively internet enabled on the host connection)

I got windows 7 32bit on all pc's, just thought I'd ask, did not realize there could be many possible setup methods.

You will want to use ICS

Unless you have 3 NIC's on your PC then you will have to purchase a switch.

This is where i will recommend that you purchase a router then connect all the PC's to the router.

A. Click Start, type services.msc and hit enter.


B. From the list of services, double click on "Function Discovery Provider Host" service, change the startup type to disabled and stop the service which will turn off the service.

Or if it's set to Automatic change it to Manual which should keep it from turning back on Automatically.

Changing the service to Manual should keep it from turning back on, it may have been set to Automatic.
