I have a hub at home, I use it to connect to broadband and then share this broadband among my PCs.
- Previously I made a home network for 2 PC and 1 laptop, all with windows xp professional, all join the same group, set one PC's internet connection to allow sharing, and all others can connect to internet through this shared connection or can do with their own connection.
- I didn't notice when it happened, others can only connect to internet through their own connection while the shared connection icon still showing at other's task bar.
- Now I bought a new laptop, I think it's time to fix the issue. the same winxp pro for all. I run the same setup wizard, set one PC's connection allow sharing. This time, even the shared connection icon not showing on other PC's task bar.
I remember long time ago, once I had network problem, I format the PCs and got things working on the new builds. But this time, all PCs are nearly new builds. Any idea where I did wrong?
