    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

Question Active ethernet ports, limit or am I just missing something?

Hi Guys,

I have got a question or 2 to ask.

I am running 20.04, now I use a usb modem tethered to my pc via usb, I have a wifi router that I am trying to make use of, but I am finding it impossible to share the internet connection with my router.

It seems that there is a limit on the amount of active ethernet ports. the usb is seen as a usb ethernet device, so I plug my router into my pc via the LAN port. both show as active but if the pc is online then I cannot access the network. and vice versa if I am on my network, lets say on my laptop in another room, I can see my pc if I ping it, but it is not online.

What am I missing, I have tried sharing the connection in the connection settings menu. I think it must be routed.not sure. btw DHCP is off on the router.

any help please.
