I have a DSL-300 ethernet modem connected to my PC, im running windows XP pro with two NICS and i want to internet share with another XP pro machine.

The problem is that the D-Link modem has its PPPoE sofware located on the modem itself, do i need to disable this to use ICS?, I have tried using a gateway on the second NIC but i doesnt seem to work.

I did have some success with the proxy program analogX but its uses are limited.

I have looked at the howto's on ozcableguy.com but they dont seem to work.

Can anyone explain how to do it?

OK, the XP box has built in PPPoE support, so you don't need any other software (the modem doesn't have any software on it, it is just a hardware appliance)
in XP (the host)
share the connection (the PPPoE connection)
this should set the other  NIC to default and turn on the dhcp server built in to ICS
gateway blank
dns and wins disabled
now on the client first try auto assign ip info
if that doesn't seem to work
set the ip address of the NIC to
enable dns and use preferably the dns ip provided by your isp or
from a prompt on the host type
ipconfig /all |more
make note of the ip assigned by your isp
then on the client
from a dos prompt
ping 192.168.0.x Where x is the ip of the client)
ping the isp assigned ip of the host
ping www.experts-exchange.com

Now also important, how are you connecting the two machines? with a hub, or with a crossover cable? with out a hub, you need a crossover cable
