It sounded more like he was using ICS with the "splitter" rather than a switch. Man I hate those combo units. It's a bit tough to visulize these things from here and the desciption leaves quite a bit to the imagination.

If he did have a modem/router I wouldn't think setting up shares should be so difficult?
Yeah for sure... Dedicated Cisco all the way...can't beat it.

To help us all out.. can you give us.. the make- model- and version of your ASDL modem so we know for sure if you have the router built in and also we can look up the manual so we can tell you how to set it up.
Hi

It is a Thompson TG782T, no version number as far as I can see.

Regards

As originally posted

I have an ADSL modem with both Wireless and Ethernet output, the Ethernet cable is connected to a splitter and two PC's are connected through the splitter, the third is connected by wireless.

I know what you have there but the problem is that I do not see a router "real router" in your network, not a combo modem with internet access. Maybe if you post the model number of your modem I can look up it's capabilities and see if it can be used to set up an actual network. Creating a second network for this isn't really a good idea. You want one network with full functionality.

From what I have read your Thompson TG782T should have router and DHCP capablities. You say you are already sharing files between systems so it should be possible to share with other Windows OP systems as well. I'm a bit unsure about what you meant by network splitter? We use switches on our networks these days?

Are you having any particular problem with sharing?

From what I see. You should have 4 yellow ports on the back of your modem. Connecting each of your computers into one of those ports will then allow you to connect your computers easily in windows. You can use windows home on each to get things rolling (for a quick and simple setup). Or you can do it all manually setting shares and the likes.

Does you modem have the 4 yellow ports on the back and are does each of your wired computers connect to one of the 4 ports?

Yes the Modem has four yellow ports.

Two PC's are connected through a D-Link Switch (I thought a Switch and Splitter were the same thing) I can connect these two PC's directly through the yellow ports but I would prefer to connect the third PC (Vista Home Premium) through wireless to save having cable across the floor.

I don't understand why you need to use ICS at all... if all 3 machines are connected to the router then they should all have internet access, ICS is only used when only 1 machine has internet access....

Or am I missing the point?
