  juggler73 17:41 18 Sep 2006

ive got the 2 pc's seeing one another file sharing and printer sharing etc through acrossover cable but for some reason the other pc just dosent connect to the internet. ive tried different things.
my main one connects fine to the internet
ics is enabled
there must be something im missing

maybe a firewall thing i use trend micro 2006.

ive googled and ive googled my problem but cant seem to get it to work.

any help would be great.

You need to 'bridge' the connections.

Open your network connections folder. Using the shift key select the networks you need to bridge, then right click them and select bridge.

Next select your main PC connection, right click it and advanced select the option to share the connection.

Post back if not working...

Have you tried running the network wizard in control panel on both machines?

When you ran the set up wizard, did you make a disk to run on other PC's on the network?

This is used to set up the TCP/IP settings so that the PC can use the internet through the main connection.

you only need to do that if the other pc isnt using xp

there are both running xp pro

Does the double monitor icon show on the system tray? If not you may have to run the wizard again. Make sure that the main PC is connected to the internet first...

Ohpps, if they are there double click the other PC and in support tab, click the repair option. This will check the connection and try to fix any problems...
