Using Software to Share an Internet Account

You can share an Internet account by installing and configuring a software DHCP server on one of the computers connected to your network. This software then provides DHCP services to the other machines on your network.

Note

The function of the DHCP server is to provide and manage IP addresses to devices on the network. The DHCP server doesn't actually provide the Internet access itself; that comes from the connection method you use (such as a cable modem). The DHCP server manages the traffic between the Internet connection and the devices on the network.
