Windows 7: can't share my internet through (ICS), to an ad-hoc

can't share my internet through (ICS), to an ad-hoc

Hi guys,

I'm trying to share my internet connection [ huawei modem] to usb flash tp-link

wireless through ad-hoc connection. In the past I used to make a bridge between

any connection to share my internet and make my laptop as a router, and it always

works without any hassle. But now since I'm using 3g modem to connect to internet,

windows 7 doesn't allow me to make any bridge between my 3g modem and my

wireless tp-link device. So, I tried using ICS, to share the internet connection from

my 3g modem to the an ad-hoc I've set up, but when I connect to that ad-hoc

no internet is there. and the ipv4 that the 3g modem assigns to

my wireless card is 192.168.2.1


my ipconfig/all results:

Try disabling any firewalls and check your AV for one as well (many new AV products include a built in firewall).

It would also help to know if both PCs are Win7, or just the one sharing Internet?

I am also assuming that you have same workgroup set on both and both are in the same 192.168.2.xxx subnet...???

I still don't understand why you were being sarcastic!!


Only for sake of future members who might have my problem.

I solved mine by disabling my NOD32 firewalls.

It might be a better idea to have Nod32 firewall 'allow' that connection, rather than turn it off. Look in the Firewall settings.

Hi Jacee,

I'm still trying to enable my connection and adding it as an exception

but this thing is giving me a headache. It's so complicated.

I see what I can do, and might as well report back here.

Have you looked here? ESET Smart Security Personal firewall behavior and user interaction (4.x) - ESET Knowledgebase

and here How do I configure ESET Smart Security to allow media streaming to my Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3? - ESET Knowledgebase
Quote:
In order to stream media (music, video, pictures, etc.) from your PC to an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 (or other device) on your network, you must ensure that UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) protocols are allowed by ESET Smart Security's Personal firewall. Configure the Personal firewall's intrusion detection system (IDS) to trust UPnP devices on the network by following the instructions below
