Direct cable connection+ADSL



New Member
I am trying to setup a two computer network using direct cable connection via COM ports.
I also have ADSL and am trying to set it up to share online access. I bought a internet sharing product(Startech's Internet Splitter) that requires direct cable access between the two computers to work.
Apparently to enable this to work I need the networking protocols:Client for MS network or MS Family Logon to be enabled. Only problem with this, is that my ADSL connection requires that those above mentioned protocols need to be disabled for ADSL access, for security and the fact is that I get,"Looking for DNS entry".
So my question is, is there a way around it?
