i have a mixed scenario right now.
I have only three computer on home network.
i).vista accer travelmate 4720 laptop loaded with vista sp1 ultimate
ii).normal pc : this pc is loaded with opensuse 11.x linux but this pc has 2 NICs I have connected both with a switch and internet.can I use one NIC as private and another NIC as public to access internet?
iii). normal pc : its loaded with win xp sp2
how to set my network.
I have connected each NIC with a D-Link switch.And the ordinary D-Link switch is connected with DataOne Nokia Siemens network c2110 modem.
But problems are that
each time i can connect only one PC at a time.
2)opensuse 11.x is not connected to the specified modem ever…by adsl seup command.
Every time i am trying to connect to network suse is saying you need to configure your NIC.how to do that?
I would personally, use a router rather than a switch. The ADSL modem connects to the router upline. Then the PC’s connect to the wired connection points. The Laptop can be connected wirelessly if you have a wireless router or wired connection if not. Eg. a DLink 615 router can connect 4 wired PC’s and up to 96 wireless ones. Another option might be to connect 2 PC’s direct and the PC with second nic tie into switch or router with Laptop. Posible config are almost endless
