Sometime we want to share internet connection because usually an ISP just set up for us just for one computer. Let us make suggestion that our network topology like this picture
single internet
We need additional computer to connect to internet, but before we change the topology first note the IP address, Subnet mask, default gateway of the Computer A. For example maybe:
IP address: 192.168.0.2
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1

Basically we need IPv4 learning to know how to share internet connection, but for our comfort first we don’t need much for this. Next we need 1 hub or switches, many straight UTP cable depend on how many cable we need for our network that we can buy or follow UTP cable article. Next step is change our previously topology to this topology like this picture
share internet connection
Next step is to make configuration for NIC of Computer B like this:
IP address: 192.168.0.3
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1
Connect Computer A and Computer B to hub or switches with straight UTP cable, hub or switch to router with straight UTP too. To make sure every device has a good connection from Computer A run: ping 192.168.0.3 and ping 192.168.0.1. Next run from Computer B: ping 192.168.0.1 and ping 192.168.0.2. If the ping is successfully, now we can connect to internet. Hope after read this tutorial will make us comfort with computer and internet.
