    Internet Sharing Problem

    Ok heres the deal

    The Setup:

    Comp A; 1 NIC connected to ADSL modem; 1 NIC connected to CompB

    Comp B; 1 NIC connected to Comp A

    Installed Internet Sharing Protocol in Windows networking on Comp A and specified an IP address on the NIC connected to Comp B.

    On comp B specified the gateway pointing to Comp A's IP.

    The Problem :

    IT DOESNT WORK!
    Any help here is greatly appreciated!

    I could be wrong but I think you need a crossover cable from CompB to CompA. NIC to NIC needs different cabls than NIC to hub/router/modem. Aside from that, I don't know too much about ICS but it is fairly popular on these boards so I am sure someone can give you a pointer in the right direction
    anything is possible - nothing is free

    Definitely a crossover cable is needed if you are going direct from nic to nic.

    crossover

    Umm I am using the proper crossover cables to connect my NIC's. My 2 PC LAN works fine and both puters are able to see each other. Its just the Internet sharing that doesnt work.

    if u use ICS for the internet sharing then DON'T specify the IP addy and gateway on the client...

    it should receive this from the host..... so again.... DON'T give it a static ip addy...... just set everything to automatic

    well all i did was what cobra asked me to do....

    i started from scratch......reintsalled all my drivers/protocols and then used the networking wizard to configure my network.

    The only thing i did manually was input the DNS server of my ISP thats all.....then all went ok
