I have a pc as host running xp pro and a laptop as client also running xp pro. I had the internet working on the the laptop through the pc. Now it doesn,t. I have Zonealarm as firewall on the pc but nothing on the laptop. I can see the network on the pc and the laptop. On the laptop I can see that the broadband connection is on and shared but when I start ie6 it is obviously trying to connect but after about 10 seconds it comes up with the dialup connection for my modem connection. I have the pc with 192.168.0.1 and 255.255.255.0. I have tried the laptop with 192.168.0.2, 255.255.255.0 and default gateway set to 192.168.0.1. and "obtain an ip address automatically". Both don't work. Any ides would be great.
