When using 2 pcs, a modem and a swicth to connect to the internet do i need to have brodband software installed on both machines or just the one?

Modem, swtich and cables are all fine but only one PC (which is connected to the modem) works.

Any ideas???????????????

You need to Internet Connection Sharing to get your other PC on the Internet. ICS is a bit flaky though.

An option I used to use before I got a router is Proxy from AnalogX click here this is installed on the PC with the modem, then you just set other pcs to connect to the internet across the network by pointing them at the main PCs IP address.
