    Re: why do I need router to share my internet connection

    You have two basic choices:
    ICS in Windows XP, which uses the PC as a router and means it must be switched on at all times for other users to get web access
    A separate router, which each PC connects to and replaces the PC with ICS installed

    So a router means no need to keep particular PCs on, as well as providing other services like DHCP, VPN, port forwarding and NAT firewalling

        Probably -- but depends on the router you get

            I have had very good results with Netgear's Prosafe series, but it depends on your exact requirements.

            From your username, what is your MCSE -- windows 2000 or 2003?

              Re: why do I need router to share my internet connection

              I m studing mcse2003 I done MSCA exams ,working as system administrator in small organization for 1 months .

              I have to change so many things, even they Dont have domain, (workgroup) with full control every users .

              I would like to start with router to solve some problems like firewall and better way to share internet connection , give ftp server private ip address for better security and publish it on internet .

              I ll take a look to Netgear's Prosafe series , and keep in touch with you

                  Have you thought about how the network should look like?
                  How large is the current network?
                  what you do already have in place?
                  An ISA server might help also, but it depends if it's worth the money.

                    Depends on various things, but I'm assuming you mean a server OTHER than the FTP server being off. However, servers are generally on 24/7.

                    Your best bet is to plan out the new network schema first.
