Internet connection sharing
Posted on 2003-03-02
I have a XP-computer which has two LAN adapters and one of them is connected to the internet. The other adapter is connected to a hub that has also another computer (Windows 2000) connected to it. I'd like to enable internet connection sharing on the XP-machine, so that the second machine could connect to the internet through it. I had the whole setup working already, but then I had some other problems and had to remove network adapters and the system went totally nuts. Now I try to set up the internet connection sharing again, but when I enable it on the adapter that is connected to internet, XP-machine can't connect to internet anymore through it... and neither can the Win2000 machine, of course.
What I did was this: I checked the "enable users to connect to internet through this machine" on the advanced tab of the properties window of the network connection for the adapter (what a sentence!) and XP set up the properties for the other connection automatically (IP: 192.168.0.1 and so on...) then I manually changed on the Win2000 machine the properties of the network connection to: IP: 192.168.0.254, gateway and dns: 192.168.0.1. This is right, right?
So what more can I do except install Windows XP again???
