Problem with IP address allocation in a home network with ICS

Discussion in 'Windows XP Networking' started by Fabre Lambeau, Jul 30, 2003.

  1. Hi!

    I've got tremendous difficulties trying to setup my home
    network.
    Configuration is:
    - 1 computer with 2 NIC, one connected to the internet, the
    other for home network (IP: 192.168.0.1, mask 255.255.255.
    0)
    - 1 other desktop computer with one NIC.
    - 1 laptop, that 4 times a day changes network, at home and
    in the office.
    All run XP.

    The first computer shares its internet connection via
    standard ICS. Connection with internet is fine.
    Second computer and laptop, I would have liked them to use
    DHCP that (according to what I read) comes with ICS, so
    that they would get access to the home network. I never got
    it to work though.
    When manually setting the second computer's IP to something
    in the range 192.168.0.x, all works fine, it gets the
    connection and accesses the internet without any problem.
    Same thing on the laptop. However, in that case, it is not
    at all convenient, as I also use the laptop in the office
    where we use DHCP. I'd like to avoid typing in a manual IP
    address every time I come back home.

    I've been thinking of using the "alternate IP
    configuration". However, there is a problem with that too
    What actually happens is that the laptop (or the second
    computer, when I enable client DHCP) get an address in the
    range 192.168.234.x. Why this 234 I don't know, but
    obviously it shouldn't be that and proof is that this
    doesn't allow me to share the internet connection or simply
    to interconnect with any machine on my home network.

    Any idea what could be happening?
