ICS XP HOME AND DSL

By jsoto ·
I HAVE TWO COMPUTERS I NEED TO CONNECT, I AM USING A CROSSOVER CABLE. BOTH COMPUTERS HAVE XP HOME EDITION; COMPUTER1 HAS TWO NICS ONE FOR THE DSL AND ONE FOR THE NETWORK TO BE CONNECTED TO COMPUTER2.; COMPUTER2 IS A LAPTOP. FOR SOME REASON I AM HAVING A HARD TIME CONNECTING THEM, THEY DON'T "SEE" EACH OTHER. WORKGROUP IS THE SAME, THE IP ADDRESSES ARE IN THE SAME RANGE AND MASKS ARE THE SAME. HELP

The ICS host machine will automatically be assigned the private address 192.168.0.1. Both the client and the DSL NIC should be set to receive their addresses automatically.

To test connectivity from laptop go to start, run, type "cmd" at the dos prompt, ping the ip address of machine B.

If you dont, make sure the laptop has a valid address. "IPCONFIG /all" Try setting the Laptop to use automatic settings.
