  1. Hello, and thanks for any help.

    I recently got into home networking, and thought I'd give it a try. Since Windoes XP has the networking wizard, I figured it would be pretty easy to do. After setting up my LAN, I was successfully able to browse my client computer from my host. However, when I enabled internet connection sharing, I lost internet on both host, and client. I have my host computer installed with 2 NIC cards and acting as the router. I enabled routing in my registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters) and rebooted. Still, when I start the network, my internet is shut down. If I disable my network, my internet is connected again on the host computer. I am using DSL. Can anyone tell me what I may be doing wrong?

    Are you enabling internet connection sharing on the right connection?
    (it must be the internet connection on which you enable it)
    You do not need to change any registry keys to enable internet connection sharing.

    And post us your routing table, to do so, do:

    enable internet connection sharing
    open dos command console
    route -print<enter>
    ipconfig /all<enter>

    copy all the information and paste this into this thread.
