ICS problem

Scenario:

PC #1 (Host)
2 NICs with no errors in Device Manager
Win98SE
DSL line goes into NIC A
Cable from hub goes into NIC B
ICS configured to perform DHCP

PC #2 (Client)
1 NIC with no errors in Device Manager
Win95
Cable from hub goes into the NIC
TCP/IP configured to get IP from DHCP server

I can:
Access the internet from PC #1
Ping PC #2 from PC #1
Ping PC #1 from PC #2, with both the DSL IP and lan IP
Ping my ISP's gateway IP from PC #2

Otherwise, I cannot connect to the internet from PC #2.

I have uninstalled/reinstalled ICS, but that doesn't appear to resolve the problem.

Ideas anyone?

What I would do to clear this quickly would be as follows:

1. Boot into Win98 and remove networking entirely, including all of the protocols etc. Use add/remove, windows setup and remove all of the components and protocols.

2. Shut the system down and physically remove the network card.

3. Boot back into Windows and make sure the protocols and adapters are gone.

4. Now boot to a Command Prompt only by tapping the F8 key right after the memory post and choose command prompt only. At the prompt type the following:

SCANREG/FIX<enter>

After scanreg has run and remove the network entries, bot back to windows to make sure there are no problems.

5. Now shut down and reinstall the LAN card.

6. Now setup the drivers for the card and reinstall netorking and you should be fine.

Drbnf, set your browser to access the internet via the lan instead of through a dialup. Do the same for email.

IE and Outlook have already been setup that way.

Now that I think about it, I prolly should have added this in the first place.  I did have ICS working before.  I had to remove ICS for a bit when I broguth my computer over to a friend's lan.  When I came back and reinstalled ICS, that's when it started this problem.

Which one did you bring, the one acting as the master or the one acting as the slave?

I brought the host computer over to my friend's lan.  I was having issues connecting to the lan there.  Once I removed ICS, everything worked fine over there.  When I returned home with my host machine, I reinstalled ICS so both computers could connect to the internet at the same time.  That's when my life started getting difficult.  The slave computer never left the desk it is sitting under.  (While the host computer was away, I did configure the slave machine to use the DSL line directly and I connected the DSL cable into the NIC of the slave machine.  When I returned, I returned the slave to the original 'ICS friendly' settings.)

PS: I like how you worded step 6, "...should be fine."  :-)

I had the same. Disable DNS on the CLIENT PC. and enable "USE DCHP FOR WINS RESOLUTION".

its silly, but it worked for me.

Kimda, you are obviously new to this site, and with that welcome. However, we do observe a protocol here (albeit unwritten) that dictates that unless your proposal in certain to end in resolution of the issue, post it as a comment. This precludes the question and the problem included therein from being blocked from the view of other techs. You cooperation here would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have the client PC configured for DHCP and DNS is already disabled.  Thanks for the input though!

Yee-haw!!!  If I weren't so amazingly tired, I'd celebrate more.  Your idea about removing all network components (both in Win98 and the physical network cards) worked like a charm, Dew.  I guess clearing everything out and starting again fresh triumphs yet again.

I appreciate any/all tidbits everyone had to offer, and kudos to Dew for the resolution.  Thanks a bunch!
