Hi, I have 2 pc's 1 on XP Home 1 on XP Pro. Both are networked via a hub, sharing a ADSL connection from the XP Home PC. My problem is the network can share files and print but I can't get the internet on the second (XP Pro) PC. Everything is enabled for sharing - the second PC even shows the speed of the connection and that it is receiving data via the modem. All I get when I load up IE is the progress meter slowly getting to two bars then the message saying the page it is not available. My ISP is BTOpenworld, is that anything to do with it? can anyone offer any help please without resorting to anymore hardware?
Thanks for your replies I have taken off the firewall (XP firewall) but still I have no access. The hub is a make called "Switchings" Yes the PC is sharing its interenet connection I've even had a mate around who runs a computer shop and runs a helpline at local computer fairs - he can't find any fault.
when you set up the network make sure you choose,this computer connects through a residential gateway,when using your router which happens to be the gateway.which you would have done on the other pc as that connects through the gateway ie:router also.
I have now sorted the problem it was difficult but
If you go Network connections -LAN Properties - Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and click ion it and click on the Use The Folling DNS address and leave the address blank that will enable the internet over the network
