I've just bought a couple of wi-fi cards. I've plugged one into my main machine and one into my laptop. I previously connected the two machines together with a crossover rj45 cable.
Anyway, I can see each machine on the network, and access files as i like.
On the main PC, I've clicked my dial-up connection, and enabled connection sharing. I've also enabled remote machine to control/disconnect the dial-up network.
On my laptop, I can see the 'internet gateway' with my ISP's name. There are barely any options I can use.
When I click Connect, my main PC's modem whirrs and connects me, and I can view the net as usual on the main PC.
However, the laptop sees the gateway as connected, but internet explorer doesn't see the LAN. It's set to (use dial=up when LAN is not present), and I keep getting my dial-up box when I attempt to go places. This used to work when I had them connected by cat5.
I've tried a few things and searched google for a bit, but I can't see why it isn't working - my firewall's all correctly set (and I've disabled it - makes no difference)
