  1. Hello all,

    I would like to have my internet connection of one PC shared on my laptop without having to buy a connection point. I tried it with ICS and with a bridge, but the don't seem to work.

    The following is the situation:

    Desktop:
    Internet connection comes in via cable:

    IP: 81.164.69.56
    Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
    Standard gateway: 195.130.132.106
    Primary DNS: 195.130.129.163
    Secondary DNS: 195.130.130.163

    + second wireless network card to share this internet connection with my laptop (this one is shared via ICS)

    IP: 192.168.0.1
    Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0


    Laptop:
    My wireless Card is connected with the wireless network card of the desktop (I get an excellent peer-to-peer connection).

    IP: 192.168.0.121
    Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
    Standard gateway: 192.168.0.1
    Primary DNS: 192.168.0.1

    But although I have a connection between the both cards, I can't access internet via the client or neither can I even ping the server.

    What do I do wrong?

    Thanks in advance!

    What are the operating systems on these computers?

    Your laptop is wireless, so you must have a wireless modem or access point already

    Both have XP as OS...

    It must be possible to share my cable connection with my laptop via a wireless network card in one of the desktops in my LAN, not?

    Yes this is an easy task using a wireless router or access point... Both your PC and Laptop would access the Internet independently and they can also be networked with each other sharing files and a printer

    I know, at my home I have this situation. But at my parents there isn't a wireless router, only a wireless card in one desktop. Because I don't want to buy a router, I want to share the internet connection of the one desktop. I tried like discribed above, but there is something wrong.

    Anybody an idea what?
