Greetings there ^^ Im sorry to have revived a old thread,tho i am trying to do something without any success.
Id like to use a ICS Between my Desktop computer with Windows 7 Ultimate X64 and my parent's laptop with Windows XP Home Edition X86 . The Host has the internet via USB HSDPA Modem,and im trying to share the internet connection via WLAN Network.
First of all,my wife can connect easily to it,tho she has Windows 7 X86 ,it gets the correct ip adresses and gets internet in less than 25 seconds.Same happens to my 2nd Laptop,which can connect very well,haveing Windows 7.
But my parents's laptop with Windows XP wont do it.
Things i've done : Setted ICS On the Desktop computer
All computers are same Workgroup
File sharing is activated,same is Network discovery etc etc
The host,my wife's laptop and my 2nd laptop are in the Homegroup (as Windows 7 calls it)
Tho my parents's laptop cant go in(Since its WXP)
Ive tried configuring the laptop with the wizard "This computer connects to the internet through another computer in my network" .
It connects to the wireless networks,gets a IP adress ,i recieve and send packets (At least thats what it says) but it doesnt haveinternet nor can share stuff between them.
Oh btw,the IP adress it recieves is totally diferent (in range) from the desktop and the other 2 laptops.
(All 3 computers have 192.168.137.XXX and 255.255.255.0 as Gate,but the windows XP one has 169.254.154.243 and 255.255.0.0.
P.S: If i manually set IP Directions to be in the range (192.168.137.XXX and 255.255.255.0) i can share files easily but the internet doesnt share >< .
Awaiting your answers ^^ Thank you so much in advanced.
