    we need the physical wiring layout; is it
    Code:
    (A)   modem-->computer-A-->nextComputer-->next...
    or
    Code:
    (B)   modem-->router-->all other computers
    in (A), you need ICS to be active and in (B), all other computers need to
    use DHCP for its IP address and DNS address
