No internet on client (adhoc network)

Guest

I have a XP host and a Vista client on my adhoc network.

I've reinstalled...

1. The OS for my XP host machine.
2. AOL for internet
3. Drivers for Wireless USB adapter

I've then.....

1. Gone into the Wireless adapter properties
2. Clicked on 'Wireless Networks'
3. Added my network name in 'Preferred networks' disabling 'Data Encryption'
4. Clicked 'Advanced' then on 'Computer-to-computer (ad-hoc) networks only'

I have no firewalls installed as yet and I've disabled Windows firewall.

Manually configuring 'Internet Connection Sharing' through Local Area
Connection gives me the error:

Internet Connection Sharing cannot be enabled.
A LAN connection is already configured with the IP address
that is required for automatic IP addressing.

The Network Setup Wizard fails to work too.

My Area Connection has the IP address 192.168.x.x
My Wireless adapter AND the adapter in my Vista laptop have the IP address
169.255.x.x

File sharing is fine. No problem at all but my client laptop can't access
the internet ( due not having the correct IP address)

I just posted a question with similar behavior where I cannot see my other
computers and all the troubleshooting I have done cannot resolve the problem,
which started when I installed, or upgraded to, AOL 9.0 VR. I wonder if that
is the root of the problem!

Hi Lief,

Did you upgrade from AOL 9.0?

The reply from AJR suggests AOL does not support ICS

Yes, I was using AOL 9.0 SE, but had a number of problems with it, so
upgraded to AOL 9.0 VR (Vista Ready), even though I am not running Vista.
The VR version solved the problems I had in SE, but starts up and runs
slowly. The main frustration is inability to network with my other
computers. See my post "Network Connection Wizard Fails" posted yesterday.
