Question by Jordan Lucero: Computer assistance with linknig two computers to the same internet connection?
We are trying to connect two computers with the same internet connection but it is not working. We have tried with a youtube tutorial and help from our mom’s friend. Does anyone know how to help us? We have a compaq computer desktop (not sure of the year) and a 2002 desktop computer. If anyone knows how to help please help. Thanks!
Answer by Alex
what are you trying to do?
one computer has internet and you want to plug another computer into it to also get internet?
1) easy way
get a router
2) slightly harder way (will only work if one computer has 2 ethernet ports)
plug computer 1 into the internet, now plug the second computer into computer 1 through an ethernet port. now go into computer 1’s network settings, highlight both network adapters and right click, then pick bridge connection… wait for it to do its magic an poof, you have internet.
