XP LAN WIRELESS BRIDGE IIS

thanks everyone for the responses to other posts, I wouldn't have
been able to get this far without them...

I have 2 computers (Client, Server), 1 Hub, 1 Wireless router, and
would like to:

1) have a the Server share the Clients wireless to gain Internet
access,
2) as well as to have the Client access IIS on the server via http
(browser).

I've got 1) working, but 2) is not.
Both machines can ping each other.
Web Pages are served up localy via http://localhost/webpage.aspx.

What do i need to do to allow for my http requests to be seen by IIS
on the server from the client?

With the current set up the Wireless Connection looks like it's down,
but i can access the internet...


My Network is comprised of the following:

1 Laptop
Wireless Connection -> LinkSys Router
Lan Connection to Server through Hub

ipconfig /all

shares internet connection)

Here are the steps that I've done so far:

shares internet connection)
Client:bridged LAN and Wireless Connections

Before I set up the bridge i was able to do this http://192.168.1.17/webpage.aspx
It seems as if since i set up the bridge i am unable to do http
request on my local network anymore

Hi
I can not fully follow your Network topology, were the Internet comes in and
what the source is?
Assuming that you have a regular Broadband Internet connection. The Modem
should be connected to the Linksys Router and both computers should be
connect (wire or wireless to the Router).
If both computers are running WinXP, from a Network OS perspective, you do
not have a real server. Both computers should be configured equally around
the Router. The Laptop ipconfig reading is the way it should be for both
only each computer own IP should be unique.
When the IIs is running on its computer, and assuming that no local ports
are blocked, typing the "server" IP ( http://192.168.1.17 ) number into the
Browser would show the index page of the local site.

Jack, Thanks for the response.
I can not fully follow your Network topology, were the Internet comes in and

Futher Clarification of Network Topology:
(server denotation is simply to indicate where iis is run, client
denotes where browser runs)

Server --[ethernet/lan]---> HUB <---[ethernet/lan]--- Client ---
[wireless]---> LinkSys Wireless router <--- Cabel Modem

AND on Client:

<---[ethernet/lan]--- [MS Bridge] --- [wireless]--->

Server::XP Pro
Client::XP Media Center Edition

Server can connect to internet via browser
Client can connect to internet via browser
Client CANNOT connect to webserver(iis) on Server via http://ServerIP/webpage.aspx

When the IIs is running on its computer, and assuming that no local ports
are blocked,

Where/How do i check for this?

The Modem
should be connected to the Linksys Router and both computers should be
connect (wire or wireless to the Router).

The wireless router is on a different floor than these two machines.
Wouldn't be practical/do-able.
If both computers are running WinXP, from a Network OS perspective, you do
not have a real server. Both computers should be configured equally around
the Router.

Both machines are running WindowsXP , Server::pro, Client::Media
Center Edition
The Laptop ipconfig reading is the way it should be for both
only each computer own IP should be unique.

As i'm using a bridge to facilitate Internet Sharing (server gets to
use clients wireless connection to gain access to the internet) the
ipconfig's should be different. I could see how they should be the
same if both machines were plugged into the wireless router, or both
were wireless communicating the wireless router...


So Close...
Thanks

I put a packet sniffer on the Server and it seems that the http
request *is* being sent from the Client:

Source::ClientIP
Destination::ServerIP
Protocol::TCP
Info: 2809 > http [SYN] Seq=0 Ack=0 Win=65535 Len=0 MSS1460
Src Port: 2809
Dst Port: http (80)

Three of these requests get sent out every time i try to reload the
page on the client, with no outbound respons packets from the server :-
