I need help and I just do not understand the scripted answers given by my ISP...
I have an Earthlink DSL. I have the option of setting it in 'bridge mode' or not.
Connected directly to that I have a 10BaseT router (fastest thing I have for free).
Connected to that I have several computers and an Airport Base Station. All connected computers and the airport have hardcoded IP addresses based on the IP of the DSL.
All computers connected via the Airport are assigned IP addresses every 7 days via DHCP and are within a range of IP addresses based on the DSL's IP, but excluding the hardcoded IP addressses.
The network is good and any one computer can identify all others on the network.
Problem: I need to connect all of these computers to the net, sometimes at least two computers concurrently. Earthlink is trying to push me to sign up for their 'home networking package'. My presumption is that I have everything I need already (except the knowledge, obviously) to make this happen already.
Hat must I do to have all of the computers share a single internet connection given my current setup.
