I am attempting to network two computers together via a cable network and a "mentor" adsl router. I also have tiscali broadband to add to the equation. I have had the broadband working via the router, although I dont understand how; when I connect to the router setup, it has the option to enter the ISP username and password, which I do, then it connected to the internet (I dont understand how without a number or provider name). However the connection is shortlived and it keeps cutting off. My second problem is that evertime I reboot windows server 2003 it takes about 15 minutes to load to the log on screen, as it says it is "preparing network connections", and it does this every time I reset the machine... This is the first network I have attempted to setup, so I am a newbie!! Can anyone give me any pointers?
