Hi

I've got an iBurst internet connection on my laptop. And I've got a Netgear WGR614 wireless lan router connected to the laptop's ethernet port. I'd like to share this internet connection with the rest of the house.

I gave Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) a go. I got to the point where I could see 'Internet Gateway' on the client machine. However, I could not browse on that machine.

I think here's the rub. The netgear router defaults to 192.168.0.1. Also the ICS wizard sets the ethernet port to 192.168.0.1. Could this be the problem? Can this setup be done? Are there any proxies software applications that I can download and run on my machine?

Thanks in advance
nat

Thanks, I tried out AnalogX and it works... but it's really slow. Hopeful that ICS will work better.
There's an icon on my client machine when I add 192.168.0.1 as my gateway. It even mentions when the iburst card is disconnected... so it seems like it's doing the right thing.

But but but, I don't know what to do on my browser settings.
Automatically detect... put in a proxy.... what do i do???
