Help on Internet sharing

Hello, I have two computers, both running XP. I have fitted a 10/100 ethernet card into one computer, the other has a motherboard with built in ethernet support.
The problem is that although I have linked the computers so that they can see each others shared files I cannot get the client computer to access my internet connection. The computers are linked directly with a pc to pc ethernet cable, I have been told that I do not need a hub as there are only 2 computers?
I have a asdl broadband connection into the main computer through a Voyager 105 usb modem.
Can anybody give ideas or suggestions what to check or where I may have gone wrong,Thankyou Vin

Are you running any firewall on the main PC,if you're running zonealarm, you have to set the internet zone security to medium level in order to let the traffic thru'.

Hello, sorry for the delay I changed my password on pcadvisor and had problems getting back into forum.
I have tried disabling both windows and AVG firewall but still the same result.

Have you enabled Internet Connection Sharing?

AVG firewall? Do you mean AVG antivirus,you don't have to disable that though.

On the client PC, goto the Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections tab and click on the Setup radio button and follow the destructions....

ICS is enabled on the host computer,and AVG is a new version with a combined firewall and anti-virus.
Have completed all instructions so far but still no joy.
When I open network connections this is what i see on screen on the host computer, Two pictures of two computers, The 1st connection is my asdl connection which says connected /shared/Globespan usb asdl modem, The second connection says connected via Rhine 11 Fast Ethernet connector and the ip address of this is 192.168.0.1.
On my client computer again on Network connections it shows One set of linked computers this i have named local connection2 and it shows as connected.Does this help? Thankyou

What is the ip address of the client PC?

It should be 192.168.0.3-254

Sorry selfbuild on my last post the client ip IS set to 192.168.0.2.What is confusing me is whilst my Host computer is showing two connections, 1 ASDL and 1 ethernet, my client computer is showing only one connection This I have set to the ip above.

What is the 254 in your response for?

  selfbuild 21:50 15 Aug 2005

The 254 is meant to be the ip range of the client PC ie. 192.168.0.3 to 192.168.0.254....

What is the ip address of the host PC?

If your not sure, goto Start > Run > type cmd and hit enter. Now type ipconfig /all and list the contents here.
