ICS with XP. Client cant access internet via host.

Have a wireless network with XP between a PC (host) and laptop (client).

Can file/printer share with no problems. Can access dial up from host with no problems and surf the net.

Network connections on the client shows gateway working and the connection icon appears in my task bar, showing I am connected to my ISP via the host PC.

However when I open IE6 on the client laptop I'm unable to access any websites. Any ideas folks...
...Please!

Have you tried connecting whilst all firewalls are disabled / uninstalled?

Does the laptop also connect to another network (e.g. a corporate network)?

Have you put your network's IP address of the host into the client's DNS server?

Thanks for your responses folks.
Firewalls are disabled on both computers.
Thye laptop does not connect to any other network.

Have not put the Network IP address of host into DNS server, will try that now.....
