    Hi Unknown

    Thanks for your reply and the suggestion. However, I checked the
    settings for my shared adapter, and it does NOT have a check besides
    "Allow other users to
    control or disable the shared internet connection".

    It has just 3 checks in Advanced Tab:
    1) Protect my computer and network by limiting or preventing access to
    this computer from the internet
    2) Allow other network users to connect through this computer's
    internet connection
    3) Establish a dial-up connection whenever a computer on my network
    attempts to access the internet

    I tried to disable/enable no. 3 but it did not have any effect, while
    I guess no 1 & 2 are required to be chgecked.

    Thanks for your help

    Note: I have modified the newsgroups so as to be more relevant.
