    The two systems connected in LAN have win2k pro as OS. System A has a broadband connection and a cable modem along with it. The second system B is connected to A through a local area connection. To enable internet in both systems, i did the follo.

    1. enabled internet sharing in the properties of broadband connection. It gave a notice tat system is set to a particular ip

    2. kept the client's(system B) ip to obtain automatically as given in the notice..

    Still the system B is not getting internet..:huh: wat could be wrong!

    I bought a router (wireless - cos I had a laptop).
    Easy solution to all problems, let me tell you.
    I think WinProxy (is that its name?) will do the job.

    Bluediamond, are you using a crossover cable? To connect two PCs without a hub/router you'll need a crossover cable. Also check the firewall settings.

    BTW, I use router as I connect upto 4 PCs sometimes, both wired and wireless. No problems setting up internet sharing. But I had no problems with ICS also.
