alot of ppl have asked this similar question in the forum

but basically, all you need to do this. in each computer, it require to have a unique name for each computer... then each computer must have its own unique ip address.. for computer A, it will be like 192.168.1 (0).xxx

(0) stand for internal router, (1), stands for external

then the network group must be the same on all 4 computers.. the default workgroup is MSHOME...

after that, it should work fine...

hope that helps

Hi Jin

Welcome to PF1.

Follow This Link (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/thread.jsp?forum=1&thread=52146&message=323350&q=faq+%2360#323350) to our networking FAQ and you should find all the answers you need. With your setup it should be quite straightforward, but don't use ICS, you don't need it with a fourport router, provided that it is a router & switch.

Read the FAQ first then post some hardware details so that we can see what you are working with.
