Hi,
I have just added a machine to my network. Quite a slow pc, with windows 2000 server. I am running 11mb/s wireless cards and a linksys router to connect. I am having so much trouble connecting the pcs and sharing the internet connection. Can someone please with sugar on top remote desktop share with me and help me with the problem! Loads of points available.

Thank you

Dan

Is the windows 2000 server machine the one that the internet is connected to?  If so just enable Routing and Remote access and choose a NAT setup.  Then on all of your machines configure thier remote gateway to be the windows 2000 server IP address.  If not, give us some more information and we'll be glad to help.

the server with 2000 server on it, it send the internet to the other machines through a Linksys router, which had the wrong connection to take the broadband directly, this is why i am still stuck with ICS.

Since the windows 2000 server is the one that has the internet connected to it, NAT with RRAS (routing and remote access) is your best solution.  Here is an article on how to setup NAT:

The options which the article addresses are not in my list in the routing section.
