Windows XP p2p networking prob when having 2 ethernet cards
Posted on 2003-10-24
I am running Win XP Pro with Service Pack 1. I hav 2 Ethernet cards installed in my pc. i wish 2 create a p2p network. 1 of my nic is connectd 2 a DSL modem wheras i wish 2 use d other 1 to connect it to another computer running the same OS. I also wish 2 make this computer(d one with DSL) as the ICS host. i have used the network setup wizard many times but to no avail.. they do not detect that 1 of my nic is used for DSL. If i go to My network places and click on view workgroup computers, i get an error message saying i cannot connect to the workgroup and that i might not have acces permissions. How is this possible when it is my own workgroup? This problem only occurs on the ICS host computer. if i were to click on view workgroup computers on my other pc it will display only that pc as my ICS host pc is unable to log onto the network.. please help me.
