Hi all,
 I have two PCs connected thru a peer to peer network. One of my PC is connected to an ADSL router/modem(i think) and configured for ADSL connection. Is there any way to share this connection, so that i can use my ADSL line in the other computer with out using any extra hardware device. i shared my ADSL connection and while sharing the connection my pc automatically selected IP as 192.168.0.1.

correct, Internet connection sharing automatically makes your PC IP address 192.168.0.1 and will ask you whether you want to create a DHCP server. Windows 2000 and Windows XP has this feature.

The PC that become kinda router will do the NAT function. So whenever the other PC want to access the internet, the main PC need to be turned on.

Hi Raj,
Please just follow the following steps to share your ADSL connection for another n number of systems (PCs)


1.Do following configuration on the system which is having ADSL connection presently.
Set TCP/IP properties as follows

IP address : 192.168.1.1

Sub Net Mask : 255.255.255.0

Default Gatway : 192.168.0.1


2.
A}Go to www.download.com and download Winproxy utility.

B}Install it on the 192.168.1.1
while configuration set internal sharing ip address 192.168.1.1 but not the ip address assign by ADSL service provider ( as there are different kind of ADSL connetions are available ... in some yu have permanent ip address and in othere it provide temp. ip address)

C}Keep your http port 80 and ftp port 21 (there it shows conflicts with other port setting such as smtp of pop.... please ingore it.... but if it shows conflicts with port 80 or port 21 then please assign any port for http 80 --> say 79 or 78 and for ftp 21 --> 25 or 24)

D}Start your winprosy utility after intallation


3.Set TCP/IP settings on any of the pcs other than host machine i.e., 192.168.1.1

IP address : 192.168.1.2

Sub Net Mask : 255.255.255.0

Default Gatway : 192.168.0.1

A} Now open properties of Internet Explorer if you are using Internet Explorer or open prepherance if you are using Netscap navigator.

B}Go to connection of Internet Explorer and set proxy setting as
192.168.1.1 port 80(whatever you have taken instead of 80)
just check a box to disable the use of proxy setting for local access.

C} Close Internet Explorer/Netscape Navigator and open it once again

now you are able to access Internet from this machine also.


just check out and reply me if you have any probs.

 Thx for ur comment. I configured my network as u directed. Everything worked fine for one time but when i restarted my host machine, it stoped sharing the ADSL connection. Even  Host ADSL connection also not responding. Again i reinstalled my whole OS and drivers. Is it because of WINPROXY?. Can u pls comment.
