limited or no connectivity

By compuden ·
I have 2 network cards in my pc. one connects to my router for internet and the other to my laptop. I'm sharing an internet connection with my laptop. I have specified an ip address on my pc and my laptop is set to automatically assign. i'm getting an error"limited or no connectivity" on my laptop. i tried connecting another pc and still get the same error.I think my pc is not assigning a correct ip for the pc's.is there something i can u se to fix? I have XP pro and i got sp2.

PC doesn't assign the IP

by ComputerCookie In reply to limited or no connectivit ...

The PC doesn't assign the IP, the router does. Why do you have the Laptop connected to the PC? If you are using DHCP with the laptop what are the IP and subnet, and what are the static ones for the PC.

There are so many reason why what you doing won't work. Some details will assist in resolving your problem.
