My setup is similar to UB's... I have a wireless router switch... The cablemodem connects to the router... with 3 machines on the switch... the 4th port connected to an 8 port switch connecting the rest of my machines.

Using your main rig to share the internet connection may slow down your connection significantly... At least it did for me when my first router died...

Anyway... first make sure your machine has ICS enabled (internet connection sharing).

Next, where did you get the crossover? was it home made or bought. From each nic, are you getting a blinking light?
