Problems Sharing Broadband on AdHoc Network
Posted on 2004-04-21
I have just got broadband and I am trying to share the connection using an AdHoc Set up with my PC as the PC that connects directly to the Internet, as in, the PC with the modem.
I have a Linksys 802.11b Wireless Adapter and a Netgear PCMIA 802.11b Card.
Instead of me posting what I have tried to do and failed, could someone talk me through each step of sharing my connection?
My PC (the host) is on Windows XP Pro and the Laptop is on Windows XP Home.
All I have managed to do is make them recognise each other, but no matter what I try I cannot get the internet to work on the Laptop.
I have just been using the Network Setup Wizard, but it doesn't seem to work.
So, basically, could someone please just tell me, step by step, exactly what I need to do to share the connection. I cant think of anything else to try.
Advanced thanks from me if you can please help.
