ICS Dial-up

Guest

Hi

Here is my problem.... Currently have a home network (desktop and laptop)
using two wireless adaptors and setup in ad hoc mode. The network is working
fine .. sharing files printers etc.. but I am having some problems getting
ICS to work. I am on dial-up (can't get broadband where I am) . Dial-up is on
the desktop and is configured for ICS . The laptop sees an internet gateway
and I have configured it so it thinks it can always access the network (eg
broadband) using the wizard. From the client I can make the host dial the
modem and connect but when I go into Internet Explorer I just get an error
that says the pages can't be found... I have tried a few different settings
but it doesn't seem to make a difference. Both machines use XP.

Any help would be appreciated......Thanks

Check your proxy settings in Internet Explorer.
Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN settings.

do other internet programs work (email, chat clients)?

Do all machines have SP2 installed?

The truth is one, you must accept it. Reality is not a point of view, since
if everything was a point a view, then the theory that everything is a point
of view, is just a point a view and not something real.

I'd check two things.

Can you access pages from the host / desktop, that you can't from the client /
laptop? Compare the DNS settings on the two - are they the same?

Next, check the MTU. MTU problems can apply for dialup networks, and for ICS
too.

If no help yet, provide "ipconfig /all" from both computers.

These tests should help you find the problem:

1. On the host, right click the local area network connection and
click Status | Support | Details. It should show:

IP Address: 192.168.0.1
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: none
DNS Server = none

2. On the client, right click the local area network connection and
click Status | Support | Details. It should show:

IP Address: 192.168.0.x (1<x<255)
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1
DNS Server = 192.168.0.1

3. If #1 and #2 are right, open a command prompt window on the client
and enter these lines. Each one should get four replies:

ping 192.168.0.1
ping 216.239.39.99
ping google.com

4. If #1-#3 are right, enter these addresses in Internet Explorer on
the client. They should both take you to the Google web page:

http://216.239.39.99
http://google.com
