Software bridge for Windows 2000
Posted on 2004-04-21
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
Thanks for any help
