  1. I have an internet connection on one computer that is shared with the rest of my home LAN, except I just realized that the internet (or any network resources for that matter) is not available when the host computer is in standby or hibernate mode. Is there anyway to bypass this and have the host computer keep hosting while in standby?

    u could buy a switch but would cost almost as much and you would have not anything (firewall) to keep anyone off your network. meaning with anyone with knowledge could get on your computer and do anything they wanted.

    right right but I mean specifically in terms of configuring the OS (XPSP2) or some sort of software fix.
