How to configure Internet setting for sh

I'm assuming you used ICS for your sharing software.

Basically after that's installed on your host it should've assigned an IP address to one of the nics on that station. Something 192.168.0.XXX

The second station should have everything setup to obtain automatically. The default for ICS is to dole out IPs via dhcp

To see if this happened, you can run winipcfg. This should bring up an IP of something like 192.168.0.XXX (Where XXX is different then your host). If this did not happen, then either the host isn't seeing the client or ICS isn't installed Correctly.

Your network applet can only handle 4 bound adapters, so if there's more then that, ICS won't work. You should only have one nic, the ICS and either a modem, another nic, or an internal dsl or cable adapter.

When configuring it, a mistake I see some people make is, if your connecting with a DUN connection, it's better if you choose sharing modem with ICS. I have a DSL that's pseudo-always on. I have to manually connect it w

Once you have the network hardware installed,you will go to Start>Control Panel,double click the Netwok icon,choose properties and configure by selecting tab ,Adapter,Protocols,Client for Microsoft Networks,consider the best protocol to install,NetBEUI is best protocol to install when connecting only two computers.
for more reference choose Help and type in Networking

what kind of internet connection do you have? you will need at least 2 network cards and 1 modem or 3 network cards. 1 machine will need to be the server (one connected to the internet) and the other will be the client (accessing the internet through the server) set the ip addressing as follows server=192.168.0.2 with a subnetmask of 255.255.255.0 and set the client pc to 192.168.0.3 with a subnetmask of 255.255.255.0 then get some software called sygate (best I have seen) and install it on theserver in server mode and install it on the client in client mode if you have a dial up modem dial up and the other pc should work if you have a cable modem let the 3rd nic card (the one in use for the cable modem) obtain an ip address automaticallywith DHCP.

You need Windows 98 second addition or Windows 2000 to achieve what you need without a third party program. In windows 98 second edition you need install ICS - internet connection sharing - which is not installed by default. Than you can use the IP address schemes suggested by the other people. This program allows you to share one internet connection whether its a modem or a cable modem or DSL.

Good luck.

I had to get a crossover cable to connect the two computers together in order to get the ICS to work. I just connected the two computers and skipped the hub. Might be worth a shot!
