Hi Tam,

if your cable modem has got the feature of port forwarding, s ofcourse you can route your internet request to your private ip address with different port numbers.

hope this helps,

rate this post if cleared.

Re: Connection problem

I believe unless your switch can provide those layer 3 switching (or routing) w/ NAT/PAT functions. Otherwise, your cable modem connection cannot be shared by other devices.

However, you can check will your cablem modem be acted as a router.

Or you can configure one of your PC as a router then the other PC access Internet via the router-role PC. It is the modification of the PC only and the LAN switch will be the conceration role only.

Hope this helps.
