I have 2 computers running Windows 7 Professional.
I have installed 2 NIC on Computer-1. First NIC has a direct cable internet (no router/modem) and has static IP assigned by the Interent Service Provider.
In Computer-2, there is one NIC that is use to connect to Computer-1's Second NIC using cross cable.
I have been successfull in sharing the internet connection of Compute-1 with Computer-2 but i have noticed that there are many time when some websites that open very easily in Computer-1 does not open is Computer-2 in one click. I have to always do a refresh to get the website to open in Computer-2.
How do i go about the Interent Sharing properly.
1> ICS feature of windows. (using now)
2> How do i do it using router ?
3> Using a proxy server.
Note : My First NIC in Computer-1 has Statis IP Address / Subnet Mask / Default Gateway / Preferred DNS and Alternate DNS.
I am not at all networking savvy. But i need to get this to wor.
