ICS not working properly

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by AuthorizedUser, Aug 20, 2004.

  1. Good afternoon;
    I did a clean install on my laptop after putting in a new Hard drive. Before
    I had ICS working between a windos 98 conputer, my desktop, XP Pro and My
    laptop, XP Pro. When I set it up again after the install I must have done
    something wrong. I now havwe the 98 computer off. For the other two,
    I can see both computers in the laptop and in the desktop.
    I can access the shared folders from my desktop computer name through my
    laptop xp but I can't access the shared folders from my laptop computer
    name using my desktop. The group is the same for both. The computer names
    are unique and appear in both. I ran the floppy auto configuration disk in
    both. I am showing a bridged connection "Internet gateway" in both computers
    as well as the Lan connections.
    I am running through a D-link D624 wirekess router. M y laptop uses a Belkin
    54g wireless USB adapter and the desktop is connected through ethernet.
    Any suggestions?
    How can I either repir the ICS or completely remove it from both computers
    and stsrt again?

    CS is a NAT Software use to Route the Internet signal to the correct

    Since you have a Wireless Cable/DSL Router you Do Not Need, and Should Not
    use ICS. Switch it Off.

    The Router will do the Routing. Get rid of the Bridged connection and do
    not use any setup disk. Configure manually (read the Router's manual).

    The content of the following links might further help:

    Basic Options for Internet Connection Sharing -

    Hubs, routers, switches, DSL, LANs, WANs...? -

    The page above was written by me ages ago. You might ignore the prices and
    Brand recommendations. The principles however are still the same.

  3. Hi Jack;

    What's the easiest way to get rid of the bridge? I tried deleting it but it
    comes back.

    Also, how do I turn ICS off?
