Turn off IP Routing

I am having problems getting a machine to access the network.  I am currently trying to set the network settings to match a working pc.  The only difference I have left is that when you run 'winipcfg' and click 'more info', the machine that isn't working has 'ip routing enabled' checked while the working machine doesn't have it checked.

So how do I turn that off, I couldn't find it. Thanks.

Thanks, that looks like a helpful page, but I hoping for an answer on ip routing.  I am not positive it will fix the problem, I have become curious

So U just want to get an ME box on your network..as in seeing shares on the other pc's, printing to e remote printer..etc or hitting the net ? or both. Do U have a domain controller or are you using a peer to peer ?

I have also had to fiddle around with these settings in the past due to network problems... They are stored in the registry, in this key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\MSTCP

Go to Start > Run > type "regedit" and navigate to the key above.

On the right should be a list of String values. Some may not be there, but you can add them:

DefaultRcvWindow    "65536"
DefaultTTL    "128"
PMTUBlackHoleDetect    "0"
PMTUDiscovery    "1"
SackOpts    "1"

And these are the ones you are probably worried about:

EnableRouting    "0"
IPEnableRouter    "0"

0 = Disabled and 1 = Enabled (double-click on a key to change the value)

You will need to restart the computer after you change something for it to take effect.
