My previous housemate configured his ADSL router so that we both shared the line, but connected to our own bandwidth accounts. Our login details were tied to our network connections on individual machines, and not stored on the router as seems to be the default.
I am now living elsewhere and would like to do the same thing again. We have a Billion 400G modem/router, and we need one Ubuntu machine, using one bandwidth account, and one Windows machine using another bandwidth account, to share the physical line.
My question has three parts:
- What configuration option do I need to change on the router? I'm asking for general terminology here, not Billion specific step by step instructions, although the latter would be great.
- What do I need to set up on the Windows machine? I know it's like a dial-up connection, but some clarity would be nice.
- What would the equivalent connection be called on Ubuntu, and where would we find and set this up?
We will both connect to the router over wifi, not cable, but I don't think that is too germain.
