3-0 out of 5 stars THIS IS THE WRONG PRODUCT FOR SHARING A CABLE MODEM!!
I cringed when reading the review from the guy who bought this, then went through the painful process of setting up Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) in Windows just to connect a second computer to his cable modem. There is A BETTER WAY, people! Instead of this, get yourself a Linksys BEFSR41 4-Port Etherfast Cable/DSL Router. It has ports for up to four computers to plug in and go, plus you don't have to mess with ICS; it handles the connection sharing on its own, independent of the types of computers you plug into it (Windows-based PCs, Macs, Linux boxes, whatever). Additionally, a router such as this also contains a hardware firewall to keep hackers out. You may think that firewalls are only for corporate networks, but consider this: any computer connected to the Internet full-time--as with a cable modem or DSL line--is terribly vulnerable to getting hacked! If you want to share your cable modem or DSL line between two or more computes, do yourself a favor and get one of these Linksys routers. You may also need an Ethernet card (also called a Network Interface Card), but they can be had for under $30. THIS IS THE WAY!

5-0 out of 5 stars First Home Network/Great for sharing cable modem
The Linksys FENSK05 Network In a Box is easy to install. It worked immediately after reboot. Documentation was not clear when installing the driver from the floppy. You need to browse to the correct directory for the operating system being used. I specifically wanted share my cable modem connection. Configuring Internet Connection Sharing was somewhat of a problem since I had never done it, but it works great. Well worth the price.

2-0 out of 5 stars It worked great for a while
I recently purchased a network in a box kit. On the box it states it works with DSL and cable. I started out with a ME machine connecting to a 98 machine, after installation all worked fine. I upgraded the ME machine to win2000 and I now am having trouble configuring the 98 machines internet access, printer sharing works fine. I am sharing DSL internet access thru the 2000 machine. I have called tech support a couple of times but I always get a different answer, the last guy told me to buy a router without even asking what my configuration was. If he would have explained the reasoning for this he might have sold me. I had one guy tell me he didn't have time to help me configure this and he hung up on me. I am not happy with the customer service so far.... Maybe tech support should spend as much time with me as I do on hold and getting thru the phone system. If I have to buy a router I will, but I am not sure I would buy a product from them again.

5-0 out of 5 stars Network In A Box works right out of the box
Three years ago, you couldn't get a single 100 Mbit/second network card for the price of this neat little network in a box. It comes with two PCI 100 Mbit network cards, a five port hub, software and even the cat-5 cables!

At first I was skeptical. But the whole thing worked right out of the box. I installed the cards, plugged everything in and turned everything on. Windows 98 found the hardware and installed the drivers.

The instructions were fairly clear and everything was easy to set up. In 20 minutes, I was up and running on my own private 100 Mbit network.

I like this product very much. If you've been looking for a way to share data, printers, etc... on all your home (or even small office) PCs, I think you will like it too.

4-0 out of 5 stars Linksys FENSK05 EtherFast Ethernet 10/100 Network in a Box
Quick, easy. I agree with the previous review regarding the drivers. You kinda search around for the file location, but after that & a reboot, away we went. We're not doing anything fancy with it. Sharing a dial-up connection for Pete's sake, but it works great! I'd recommend this to anyone for their first network. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product, quick and easy install!!!!!
Okay...I was a little leary. After reading all the reviews on this product and several similar products I was worried. I had seen where some had trouble with AMD PC's as well as the WinME operating system. Well both the PC's I wanted to network are AMD and one is running WinME. I ordered the Network in a box, with the thought in the back of my mind that I would probably have to return it.
However the install went great and the network was literally up and running in an hour. The instuctions are very clear, although they don't mention WinMe at all. I just installed both as Win98, but I did have to searcht he setup disk for the NIC drivers on the WinME machine.

Next we had a cable modem installed. Connected the modem to the switches uplink port, installed the sysgate software that came with the network on one machine as host and the other as client and both pc's had simultaneous Internet access!

I am a complete novice to networking so I was quite timid about all of this.

Completely happy with this product!

5-0 out of 5 stars Truly, a network in a box. Just add computers
For once, I was actually completely happy with a computer product bought retail. I put it on 2 machines running win98 and it went literally without problem. The kit provides you with all the hardware, software, and manuals that any semi-computer literate person will need. I highly recommend this product to anybody who has need for a stable and easy to install network. Not to mention it's really fast.

5-0 out of 5 stars Couldn't be simpler
I've been changing operating systems a lot lately and have had no problem connecting two ME's, a ME and a W2K and a ME and an XP.

There's no much to do, really. Just hook it up and run the Home Network Connection Wizards. Assign the shared drives, printers, etc. and you're done. The manual is helpful and easy to follow.

5-0 out of 5 stars Windows ME worked for me
I just installed this product today and connected one WinME PC to one Win98 PC. It worked very well to follow the Win98 directions for both installations. I must admit I was a bit skeptical it would work after I read the reviews here and looked at the Linksys web site. The product web page listed ME as compatible, but there were no other ME references after doing a search on the site.

Anyway, I think this product works well. So far it's been running for an hour :). I highly recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Value
I bought the kit a couple month ago and i really cant complain about it. It works great and was easy to install on my Me and 98 pcs. I would highly recommend it to anybody lookin' for a starter kit. And honestly, where else do you get a switched kit for 79 bucks? ... Read more
