I have also winxp on my main PC & there are more six systems sharing the connection. I have connected the router
to the USB port of main PC, from main PC NIC to hub & all the other systems are connected to the hub. The main PC has given IP address as 192.168.0.1 & the others given the same order as 192.168.0.2, 192.168.0.3 .......... 192.168.0.7.There is no dhcp, all follower pcs have given the gateway as 192.168.0.1 & dns
as 192.168.0.1.The sharing is running all right.BTW, I'm using PPPoE to connect.
