I have a small network setup using Netgear wireless hub. Two PCs are connected by cable and laptop by wireless. I have an ISDN connection to Tesco.net.

Problem I canot get the internet connection sharing to work. When I "Allow other network user to connect...." in the properties of Tesco.net I first get "User name and password for this connection were not saved for use by all users. As a result...."

Then I get "Error 799: Internet Connection Sharing cannot be enabled due to an IP address conflict on the network. ICS requires the host be configured to use 192.168.0.1."

I do not use fixed IP address as far as I know. I have left all address to be automatic.Anyone any ideas what I have done wrong or is it Tesco somehow?

Thanks SANTOS7

Tried this and I still dont understand. I tried outting the 198.168.0.1 address into the dial up network setting and got the same error it would appear something else is using this address. I have checked all the dial up networks and LAN settings but I cannot see it.

Can anyone suggest something else?
