    I am trying to network a HP pavillionzt1230 laptop with winXP and a HP 7800 with winME. Can this be done by using an Intel In Business 5-port hub? If so how do I start to set it up?
    Thanks

    If you don't need Internet connection sharing between these machines, probably the easiest way is to install the NETBEUI protocol onto both of them, and plug them into the hub with CAT5 cables. For ME, you can install NETBEUI from Network Properties, just add a protocol. For XP, here's Microsoft's NETBEUI instructions. http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;301041

    Well, you can still use NETBEUI to make browsing work, but you need to specify how you're accessing the Internet. If you have broadband, I STRONGLY suggest you use a broadband router. If it's dial-up, or you're stuck with a USB connection ( bad! :( ) then you'll have to look into ICS or perhaps the www.analogx.com proxy server. Of course, you'll be installing TCP/IP protocol with that too. The specific setup for the TCP/IP will depend on which option you choose to share the Internet.
