Ok I have a desktop PC(win2000 & winXP) with a PCI Network card, the pc is my internet access point. The pc is connected to laptop A (win2000) through a crossover cable. The PC has ICS(192.168.0.1), the laptop(A) has the address 192.168.0.253. Laptop A also has an 11Mbit Wireless card and is connected to Laptop B(WinXP) which also has an identical 11Mbit Wireless card. If I manually set the Wireless Ip addresses Laptop A can see Laptop B

My question is how does Laptop B see the desktop PC???

I managed to get it working when I swaped around Laptop A an B and used the WinXP software bridge. I do not want to do this however and I cannot install Win XP on Laptop A

PC____(Xover)____LaptopA ----(Wireless)----LaptopB

Thanks for any help

Hi brimur,

"You cannot create Network Bridge on a computer running Windows 2000 or earlier versions of Windows. "
