hi all - can anyone help me with this one pls? i want to share my cable modem with another computer in the house. There are 2 connections on the modem (USB and ethernet) i take the USB out from the modem and i figure it should be cool for the other computer to take the ethernet out which will go through an adapter and then into his usb port. Problem is in his device manager (he has win98) his usb controller has an exclamation mark and we get device not present, not working propely (code10) message so we cant connect. we dont want a network and he doesnt appear to have an option on his motherboard to install another usb - any ideas??
