    Alcatel Speedtouch USB

    I have an Alcatel Speedtouch USB - ADSL modem. Can anyone give an idea how I can connect this to a Network for multiple users?
    I can plug it into the single computer and use share connection using Win98, but will the USB port share the connection with a NIC card for the other computer?

    PaulLuke, I also have that same modem, and I have 4 computers connected to it. I have the modem through a usb port of course, and the 4 computers into a hub. Internet connection sharing turned on, and all four connect with no problem.

    Smile Follow up question

    So, let me get this straight.

    The Alcatel is plugged into the RJ11 jack at the wall?
    The USB connection is plugged into the USB port of the PC?
    The Hub via an RJ45 cable is plugged into the NIC card on the PC?
    The the Connection sharing option is activated on the OS?Correct?

    Thanks

    Correct..exactly like mine. Sorry about the long delay in answering. I've had all versions of windows on my computers..all of them, and have never had a major problem with either the networking or the connection sharing.
