Hi,

Humm, I think that there are some points to cleaify.

If you are using a wireless router (D-Link),
- your PC2 doesn't need to use the internet Dial-Up system... just connect as a normal network ... so just enable your network card (just check it in Network Connection)

- PC1, now that will be better to use the WinXP system (I mean this is easier to begin).
   so just be sure that the service is well enable : go to RUN then type "services.msc", in the list shown just check the one named
<< Wireless Zero Configuration>> and be sure that the setting is set to "Automatic"
now, with your router wireless, you should have received a little manual for the wireless connectivity.
So, you will have to check all those settings with the properties of your wireless network card (open the Device Manager and check for the wireless network card)

The Internet Connection Sharing is used when you want to use one computer to share the internet connection received on this last one.

Just in case, here is a link :

Hope that can help.

Ok, so you have a network that "connects" your 2 computers using your Wireless router.
So, in this case, your router is not the device that will provide the internet connection.

What you have to do is working with your PC2 (the one receiving the internet dial-up connection).
May I suggest to take a look on this site, this site is explaining step by step how to share an internet connection (to have the next step, just click on the OS wanted)
http://www.homenethelp.com/ics/ics-install-netxp.asp

Otherwise, as your PC2 will be used as the internet "provider", you can configure your PC1 to receive an IP address dynamically.

If this is not clear enough, just let me know what you have already done and where the problem came.

Hi pal, sorry for my late reply. I'm kind of busy doing my work.

Ok now talk about my problem here, Yes i wish to make the PC2 as the internet "provider", i configured PC1 and PC2 with DHCP, automatically assigned the ip address. I did set up the share internet connection using network setup wizard, but it still doesn't work. I thought the problem was the wireless router, the router does not allowed internet packets from PC2 flow to PC1. The router was designed for cable modem or DSL, so it might not allowed to share dial up internet connection, these is what i figured out at the moment. So do you have any idea? or someone who experience this problem please do let me know. Thanks

You have to disable the DHCP server in the router. Since PC2 is the router, configured to share its dialup, it has a DHCP server, and your router should be set to only act as a wireless access point.

Actually, your router must use DHCP as a CLIENT so it sees PC2 as the gateway to the internet. Then it should send all PC1 traffic to PC2. You may also wish to connect PC2 to the WAN port on your router, if it has such a port.
