I've got two computers here that need to connect via wireless-g usb adapter to the same network for internet access but only one USB adapter. Both PCs are using Windows XP, and I have no crossover cables. I've got both computers wired up to a router, and the PC with the active internet connection has ICS enabled, but the second PC gets no internet. Any ideas?
Getting very confused here.
Are you saying that you are using the router as a switch and getting the internet connection via wireless on one of the machines?
If the above is true, and ICS is set up correctly (selected wireless as your connection and shared over wired), do either of the following:
On the other machine (not the one sharing), go to network settings and manually change the IP to anything in the same range as the ICS machine - but make sure that the default gateway is set to the ip of the ICS machine.
Or, try going in to the router and disable DHCP so that the ICS machine can apply the correct settings to the other machine.
If I have got it wrong here, please can you change your question to be a little clearer on your network topology!
