ICS with XP requiers manual DNS? + unidentified network
2 questions, kinda related.
My PC, Windows 7 ultimate 32bit, is sharing internet on ICS with another XP sp3
Both computers are connected by normal wired LAN.
Internet is via broadband dialup through another NIC that connected to a modem.
ICS configuration seems to be corrent, but the XP computer cannot get access to the Windows 7 DNS servers on the dialup connections, and so websites addresses are not getting resolved.
I didn't have this problem while ICS'ing from my PC while I was still using XP.
To solve it, I just manually added the ISP's DNS servers to the XP PC LAN NIC settings.
Any idea why I had to manually added? or someway to avoid it?
The other issue:
While ICS is working the LAN adapter receives the 192.168.137.1 address, but no default gateway, hence network location is forced by Windows to be catagorzied as "unidentfied" and public.
If I add some gateway it just removes it.
What can I do to make this network type something else than identified.
