    client and server both run XP pro, ZoneAlarm Pro, and have USR wireless
    network cards

    both client and server can see, ping and share files with each other, client
    can ping server ( and dynamic internet IP

    thing is the client can't access the internet via the server

    have client set with
    Subnet Mask

    server set with
    Subnet Mask

    AFAICT all of windows auto settings are disabled

    can anyone offer some suggestions ??

    btw, the problem remains with or without ZoneAlarm running on either/both pc

    Set both host and client to obtain IP automatically, then run the network
    setup wizard on the host. If the IP addresses default to 169.xxx.xxx.xxx
    then you may have (apparently a common problem with XP ICS if you read
    around the groups) a screwy DCHP server. You could try a proxy, I had the
    same problem and am now running AnalogX Proxy.

  3. Have you enabled sharing on your internet connection?
