hi again oadby lad, just a couple more thing's i've thought of:
any software firewalls blocking the connection? in my experience these account for 99% of connection problems

also, have you tried setting Static IP's and making sure the gateway and DNS servers on the dreambox are set to the ICS machine?

Hey severdsolo, when I do this to my ethernet adapter, it basically turns off my internet, I cannot connect anymore. Like I can still see my wireless network, but it calls it unknown with no internet access.

Hi LB. Sorry i've taken so long to reply, been on holiday dont you know.

I dont know what on earth is going on there Sorry mate, im at a dead loss. Normally "No internet access" messages mean that its an IP conflict. thats all I can think of

Perhaps someone can help me...

I'd like to use the ICS fadility but i'm trying to set up a LAN (on a Windows 7 "file server") running some PCs with Win XP. This prevents me to use "Obtain an IP address automatically" (as seems from several other places and I've checked myself) The question: Is there some way of obtaining the same result (One computer access to the Internet and the others in the LAN accessing trhough the first) when running a mix of Win 7 and XP?

Hi JVN, there is indeed.

Don't quite understand why you can't use the "obtain IP address automatically" option... as the ICS gateway will be the DCHP server anyway... but as long as the network is set up correctly in a Workgroup (outside the scope of this tutorial, but there is info out there on this) then you can assign each machine Static IP's instead.

The important things are:
1. Each machine must have a UNIQUE IP address.
2. The Gateway machine (the one with the internet) should have the DNS servers set to your actual DNS servers, the others should have the gateway as the DNS.
3. The other machines should have the Gateway machine as the "Default Gateway"
4. All IP's must be in the same subnet (for instance 192.168.1.x) If they are in different subnets (say 192.168.0.x and 192.168.1.x) then it won't work.

Hope it helps.

First of all thanks for your answer severedsolo.

I'll try to avoid confusing you with superfluous information, but it is long anyway.

Now, I do neither know why the use of the "obtain IP address automatically" option does not work. The guy who sold me the new computer told to me that it sometimes happens and I've checked it personally selecting and deselecting this option. When selected, I get "Limited connection" on the XP machine; deselected and specifying an IP address 192.168.1.50 on the Win 7 server and 192.168.1.51 on the Win XP, I gain acces to the server (LAN works fine, nevertheless I lack yet the access to the internet).

Following your indications: I think I have UNIQUE IP (those I cite previously) in each machine. But I feel a bit lost with the DNS and Gateway concept. I suppose you refer to the same tab "Properties of the Internet Protocol". Well following your suggestion #3 I've specified 192.168.1.50 on the XP machine. I suppose it is now pointing to the Win 7 PC. But the issue is that I don't know what I should do in the Win 7 machine: What are in this case the DNS servers and how and where can I set them? Do you refer to some of the data that I enclose at bottom? Must they be set in the LAN connection or in the internet connection?

Gratefully
JVN

The Win 7 machine looks right.. I can't see anything wrong with that. Admittedly I don't speak spanish(?) but from what I can see, it looks like it has an external IP, the DNS is correct and so is the default gateway

Can you please open command prompt and type:
Code:
ipconfig /all
from the XP machine and post back the results?
