Network with 2 ISP's

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi Guys

Hope this is the correct thread for my query.

Here's my problem...keep in mind I know the basics of networking:

I have DSL internet in my apartment. A friend who lives on the floor below me has wireless internet with another ISP. Now what we want to do is lay a network cable between the 2 of us so we can share folders with each other. What I want to know is how do we achieve this without connecting to each others internet?

I have capped internet and he has uncapped.

Your help would be highly appreciated.

You're just going to have a LAN. Make a workgroup in windows, and share folders.

Don't go over 100Meters.

Bridge the networks, both of you will need a WiFi PCI card though, or laptops with WiFi.

EDIT: You could just use one ISP (the one with the fastest DL/UL speed) and then who ever has the slowest has to pay the one with the fastest for use of their internet. Then you will use just one router and it will be a lot easier and you won't have to bridge the networks..

We wanted to do the single ISP thing, but he wants uncapped and I want my capped connection cause the latencies for online gaming are better.

Can't I just setup the 2 different routers to both use bridge mode for the WAN connection and then just dial over PPOE to connect to the 2 different internet connections? Not sure if that will work, but a buddy said I must do that. Any thoughts?

can't you just make 1 network, but have different gateway for both ... seems more logical (though you're not exactly 100% separated from his internet, or he from yours)

Logmein Hamachi is what you should use, it creates a VPN. Both of you join the same network and then you have yourself a VLAN. From their if you have the folders shared out then you should be able to browse them and stream from one machine to the other.

I do this with my home machine, my parents pc's + laptop and my work machine. So I can access my movies,music, and games whenever I want

This way you both keep your own internet connections and don't have to do any addition work other then installing the program, setting up the virtual lan and then having your friend join that network.

One of you may need another NIC. I believe routers have means to disable network connection on specific computers. like access control or something. ill check once i get back from work.

You can go into your router settings and not allow his devices access to your internet. Depending on the router each has a different way. They will still be allowed on your lan. He can do the same for yours. Only problem I see is security, make sure he has a password up and only share certain items of yours. I would partition a drive for sharing. I would look into getting a HDD that can network.

I forgot to mention that hamachi also is AES 256bit encryption as well so you don't need to worry about your traffic being intercepted easily either.

And for those of you saying he should get one machine or the other to physically be connected to the other network, why are you suggesting this as it is not the best solution?

Not to address anyone specifically but why suggest buying some hardware that isn't needed for one. Secondly, why in the world would you create a partition for no reason just to share a folder? You can set security permissions without having to go through all those unnecessary actions. Third, you wouldn't need to do any other configurations regarding a firewall/router if hamachi was used other then allowing windows firewall to let it go out to the internet.

I'm not trying to put anyone else down for their suggestions, however it just doesn't seem logical to to go out and buy extra hardware or jump through a bunch of hoops getting your router to do mac address authentication etc.
