Sharing an Internet connection
Hello! This tutorial was written to help you set up a home network and share a single cable modem or DSL Internet connection with multiple computers.
Among the benefits of Internet sharing:
- Justifies the higher cost of a high-speed connection
- No more family squabbles over “the Internet computer”
- Improved security for your local network
Of course, Internet sharing is not a walk in the park. Different solutions are required for different people, and it’s not uncommon to botch a setup with a single wrong setting. I’ve prepared this tutorial to help you avoid these troubles; to find the right solution and make the right settings. Just read carefully, and maybe it’ll feel like a walk in the park.
If you need some clarification along the way, there are full-length definitions of many terms in the glossary. If you’re still confused, it’s probably because my writing is inherently unclear. so I can fix it!
