Using ICS on WinXP??


Question

icyorange

Hi,

Just got ADSL installed, and want to use my PC (with a PCI modem) as a proxy for my other computer and laptop to use for Internet/Email access. At the moment, my PC is manually assigned to 192.168.0.1, my other PC to 192.168.0.2 and the laptop to 192.168.0.3, all with subnet masks of 255.255.255.0. When I enable ICS in Windows XP, I can't connect through the client machines. I've followed the instructions at http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/usi...working/ics.asp, unchecking all the boxes in LAN settings, but I can't get it to work. The other two machines are running Windows Me, could this be the problem?

Thanks,

Nick

are you using a NIC directly to connect with the other machines with a crossover cable?

Are you using a router or HUB?

How are these machines connected?

I am not quite sure I understand your issue..

Sorry

Each computer is connected with normal patch cable, into a hub. One of the PC's has the ADSL modem, which I want to share with the other 2 PC's. However, I can't get the other computers on the internet, I get 'page can't be displayed' error messages on the other 2 computers, with ICS enabled on my computer.

Try this site

http://www.practicallynetworked.com/networking/

Specifically try this area

http://www.practicallynetworked.com/sharing/

Make sure to look through the whole site, with the navigation buttons on the left side of the page!

Next, have you tried to let internet explorer detect your network settings?

Try that...

It might work

Next check to see if you have on your client machines, the auto detect settings!

If that still doesnt work,

POST AGAIN and I will try to help!
