  1. Ok heres the script ( im tearing my hair out!!)

    A mate wanted to connect to XBOX live but he has a USB ADSL modem i said no
    worries use ICS as he also has an ethernet on board his pc

    However his OEM Dell windows XP didnt have option in network settings for
    ICS ?? (my retail XP home did!) anyway i tried a spare XP pro i have after
    install i noticed that under advanced network settings its still just the XP
    firewall stuff no settings to turn on ICS!

    ANY IDEAS!?!?!?

    Go to start > connect to > show all connections

    right click on the ADSL connection icon under dial-up

    select properties

    click on the advanced tab

    put a tick in the internet connection sharing box
