Hi,

I have winXP installed on my laptop capable of wireless connection. I have a broadband installed through USB.
I have HP IPAQ which has wireless connection also.

I can connect IPAQ to the laptop easily. Now what I want is too share the internet on the laptop with the IPAQ.

Can you please tell me step by step on what to do.

Secondly, if I connect my IPAQ to the laptop using bluetooth, then I can easily use the internet... but I want to connect to the internet using the wireless connection and not bluetooth.

Thanks.

Hi,

This is just sharing internet connection ...
WinXP has quite good easy step for doing that.

What you have to do is to open your "Network Connection"
Be sure you are connected with your wireless and your internet. (I mean, both of the connection should be enabled)

After that, you open the Properties of your internet connection and select the "Advanced" tab, then you just have to check the box concerning the internet sharing.
Just to let you know that if you are using this kind of configuration, the connection will automatically received the IP address : 192.168.0.1, by default, but you should see the warning message related.

Hope that can help.

i did do this.

What i have done is:

My laptop is connected to the internet using DSL.
My PDA is connected to the laptop using Wireless Connection.

I have enabled ICS on the DSL network connection.
I have disabled all kind of firewalls.
The IP given to the wireless connection network is 192.168.0.1

After this through the use of the PDA i can access my laptopn (like see its folder shares etc).
however when i try to connect to the internet, it doesnt connects.

ok, good to know and great for the description.

This already happened to me, and I worked it out by disabling all the process useless for making the OS working.
In fact, the problem was coming from Zone Alarm Pro. (just the settings to adapt)

But just to be sure, have you well configured the internet options ?
Look at the bottom of the page
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/learnmore/ics.mspx
And this is a site where step by step and with screeshots you have explanation about how to install and how to TS an ICS.

And just a last one, just in case ;-)
http://www.windows-help.net/WindowsXP/howto-23.html

So, all that just to be sure that settings are well configured on your iPaq :-)

If you have already done all this, sorry.

So, in this case, if you have already a BU of your data on the iPaq, may I suggest to try to make a soft and hard reset, just in case.
