    Hi I have a network problem

    My network consists of four machines on a coaxial network using a windowx xp machine as the gateway the coax is connected to a NIC with BNC connector.

    I also have a NETGear router/modem/wireless box which i currently have connected to the same pc but via rj45 to a second NIC with RJ45 socket

    I have set up this second connection to share the internet connection.

    The problem is, access to the internet is dipping in and out. There is no problem with the line as my simple usb modem works ok.

    1. Could some one please explain what the following should be set to
    FOR COAX NIC(ACTING AS SERVER) IP should be? Gateway should be? DNS shoudl be?
    FOR RJ45 NIC(WITH NETGEAR ATTACHED)IP should be? Gateway should be? DNS shoudl be?

    FOR ONE OF THE COAX CLIENTS IP should be? Gateway should be? DNS shoudl be?


    and/or

    2. Can i just get a BNC to RJ45 converted and just plug in the Coax with the conerteds on straight in the netgear , negating the need for the A Gateway pc and setting the Netgear as the gateway.

    With this way my concern is whether i can just put the converted on the coax then treat is as is were a cat 5 (obvioulsly i understand i will only get 10Mb thourgh it) i.e. pluggin straight into the net gear

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks
