Hi,

I am trying to set up a network for someone. The arrangement is as follows. PC running WinXP with USB cable modem connection to the net. Laptop running Win98.
Want to connect the laptop to the desktop and be able to share the internet connection using windows internet connection sharing. I have a crossover cable running between the machines and have run the network setup wizard on both. All I get is on the XP machine it tells me a network cable has been connected and I can see the laptop in the workgroup but cannot browse it or ping it. In the laptop I cannot browse the network at all.
Checked all the setting...comp names workgroup etc etc and seems ok. Win98 is showing 'internet gateway' but when i click it just get a window saying its unconfigured and needs setting up on the host machine. The internet network connection is shared when I check it in XP. The laptop can't ping the PC either.

Any ideas how I could go about diagnosing the problem. I guess a good start would be to get the computers able to browse and share files then ICS should be straight forward after that.

Any ideas appreciated.

Thanks

If the Internet Connection Firewall is enabled on a local area network connection with other computers, it will block File and Printer Sharing. This is probably the most common problem in Windows XP networking.

I pretty sure firewall isn't enabled on either the network connection or the connection to the cable modem.

If you have installed WinXP SP2 the Firewall is enabled by default.
