My family just got a new computer, (which is the one with the internet connection) so I had to set up the network again. Everything seemed fine at first, but when someone logs out from the family computer (regardless of wether anyone else is still logged in) mine can no longer access the internet untill I log back into any account on the family computer and disconnect and reconnect the internet. So far my only resolution is telling everyone to go "Switch User' instead of log out but my family can be ignorent if it doesn't affect them, but atleast they don't turn to computer off on me... Help would be greatly appreciated as it is highly annoying to be cut off in the middle of a download.
Thanks guys. First of all, I have dial-up. I assumed/heard that you can't use a router with dial-up (can't get adsl, issues over the line or some crap... and wireless/satellite arn't worth it) so I have no real good option out of that. Second, I downloaded TweakUI as you said mgmcc and ticked the "Keep RAS connections after log off", but it has had no effect. I did it on both computers to be sure and restarted both after doing so. Any more help would also be appreciated.
In the "family" computer, which is the one with the "shared" internet connection, right click the dialup connection in the Network Connections folder, select Properties, then the Advanced tab. Ensure the box is ticked for "Allow other network users to control or disable the shared internet connection". You should then be able to get the Host PC to go onlinr from your Client PC.
