    Per some members suggestions, I have a cable modem running into a Netgear Hub. Then I have cat-5 going to both NIC cards. One PC (with win xp) has internet access. The other (with win 98) still does not have internet access. Both are visible on the network and I can share files. What's the problem? Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance...

    Steve.

    Does your ISP explicitly state that you can have multiple computers connected through their cable modem? They may be preventing you access by only allowing requests from 1 mac address.
