WIN 2k, Problem getting Broadband to share through lan.
Posted on 2003-03-10
Hi, I have Windows 2000 pro installed and have a broadband connection which uses a DHCP IP Address. The connection works fine untill I have tried to network 2 PC's at home in order to share the broadband internet use. As soon as you create a LAN for the PC's and click the tab to allow internet sharing, the LAN seems to steal the DHCP that the broadband is using, stopping the broadband connection. In every other way the network works fine, allowing file sharing and mapping as normal, I just can't seem to get the broadband working through the network. I have also tried static addresses for the LAN but it still loses the Broadband DHCP when internet sharing is enabled. My question is, in windows 2000 how do I get internet sharing when the broadband ip is set by DHCP. (both machines are running Win 2000 pro)
