Hello, I am trying to set up an ad-hoc wireless internet sharing network. I have an ADSL internet connection on my desktop (more on that later) and want to share it with several laptops (not at the same time). My desktop uses Windows XP Professional (with SP2) and has a wireless network adapter. There are two laptops I want to eventually connect with: one uses Windows XP Home edition and the other is a Mac (I am first working on the Windows XP laptop). I followed instructions on the Microsoft website and managed to set things up so that the laptops connect with the ad-hoc wireless network set up on my deskptop. However, the internet does not work in either of the laptops. I have enabled my ADSL connection to be shared and the IPs, etc... are all set to automatic in both my desktop and in the Windows XP laptop. What could the issue be? There is one thing to note about my internet connection on the desktop. It is an ADSL connection but works like (and is listed as) a dialup connection. I think, then, that my situation is like that of someone with a dialup connection. Thank you so much for your help. Regards, R.
