    I've got two notebooks at home. The first one is connected to a cable
    internet with following settings : IP 10.5.14.103 Subnet Mask: 255.255.0.0
    Default Gateway: 10.5.0.1 and DNS: 10.5.0.1. This is a local network with
    local homesite that provides internet to all users. I tried to use the
    wireless network between the laptops to connect the second one to internet
    making ICS. The settings of the gateway laptop are as following: IP:
    192.168.0.1 and Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 and the second laptop has:
    IP:192.168.0.2, Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1 and
    DNS: 192.168.0.1.
    With these settings and an open wireless network with disabled WAP I cannot
    connect to the internet but only to the local area network and the local
    index site.
    I can ping all IP including the gateway: 10.5.0.1
    The connection between the laptop is perfect.
    Would you please give me any advise or direction so I could fix it and
    finally connect to the internet.

    Thanks in advance

    Did you set up Internet Connection Sharing on the laptop that is
    connected to your wired network? See
    http://www.practicallynetworked.com/sharing/xp_ics/

    If you're not using WinXP, see
    http://www.practicallynetworked.com/sharing/ics/ics.htm

    BTW, did you mean that you had disabled "WEP" (encryption)? When you
    re-enable encryption use WPA2 or at least WPA. WEP can be easily
    cracked in a few minutes using free tools downloadable from the Internet.
