Is there any way to use a DOS computer on the internet with a cable modem... I use one system with WinXP home, and I need to see if there is a way that I can also use the Dos machine on the Cable modem as well, via a router or ANY other method. Right now I use a program in conjunction with an old version of PcAnywhere that was installed in it to use the computer from a similar one at home, but its a hastle with dialup compared to using the net because it takes a long time. and it would be more convinient if I could access it from anywhere. Thanks for any help you could provide.

Well if the computer you are using can dial up into the internet then it might be possible to connect it to a cable modem Remember when DOS operating systems where created it was not even design to even go into the net broadband expecally What you may need to do this type of project would be a nic card 10/100 eithernet pci adapter, Rj45 wires or eithernet wires so you can run them to the cable modem or cable router and you can give a roll Just remember the equipment that you purchase thou must be compatible with the operating system that you are using if you are using DOS then your biggest challenge will be find the equipment that will work with it Otho I wish you the best of luck completing this project.
