    Thank you SMBP for all your sugestions and linls.After studying them i found out that my ISP(Direcway Satelite) software has issues with more than one desktop on the host pc(the one i have the software installed on).It seems that it will work fine on the client pc with ICS but only one desktop on the pc the software is installed on.A real kick in the butt for me since i pay them about 100$ a month for the business edition.Thank you again so much.

    Gee Bobby--

    That's really steep of them--and awfully severe IMHO. Most of the ones around here including one of the largest, Comcast, don't have a problem with networking up to four PC's. The prices are on the average $50 a month for cable HSD; $50 for cable TV and two movie premiums--and I have been able to get them to throw in an 8-port amp because splitters have the potential to dilute the HSD signal. I sure hope you're able to work out a way that you can network with your wife's computer to your satisfaction.
