Hello;

This is a follow up to rookie wireless.  I had installed a local network using this plan http://www.home-network-help.com/ip-forwarding.html    The local network works fine.  I'm bringing the internet down with a wireless nic to the windows xppro computer.  So I only have one network using the 10.10.10.1 side and the network.  The problem I'm having is the only the host computer can see the internet.  I have configured the nic to this IP: 192.168.1.3 sub net 255.255.255.0
gate: 192.168.1.1. I added 192.168.1.3 to the reservation portion of the router so it will be assigned the same address each time it loads, with this I did not see the internet.  Bu I added DNS 75.104.128.61, this is wildblue dns server.  It worked just for the router computer the other three can't see the internet even with the dns entered. the other thrree computers have the ip config 10.10.10.2-5 sub 255.255.255.0 gate 192.168.1.1 and dns 75.104.128.61.   How I receiving the internet is wild blue sat to netgear unsecured wireless router to linksys wireless - g range extender to wireless nic.  signal is 100%.  I also enabled netbios to IP.  So my question is, what do I need to do to get the other three computers to see the internet through the host computer??  also all firewalls are off.

Thank you for all your help, the first answer has been right on!

Hi,
Struggling to understand exactly the set up so forgive me if i have it confused!
The way i see it you have one computer connected to the internet via wifi and another three connected to it via a hub of some kind.

If this is the case then you are going to need to active ICS *Internet connection Sharing" on the HOST machine that has the internet connection on it. The subnet then for all of the other machines (and the wired network card of the machine connected to the internet) needs to be 192.168.0.x

Have a look @ http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/expert/crawford_02july01.mspx

If you want more control over the connection then try

If i have missed the point completey then tell me and I can have another look.

Configuring network clients can be a chore, especially if there are a large number of them or a lot of itinerant users.  DHCP dynamically manages this process, much to the relief of users and administrators alike!
