Help with ICS

By skyhigh ยท 8 replies

  1. First, a thanks to all those have helped solved my problem.

    I have managed to get both of my comps working fine now.

    I have networked them together, able to share files and everything but the client comp can't surf the net. I connect using a cable modem and have 2 NICs in the server comp.

    I have enabled ICS on my Internet NIC tab and have set an IP of on my secondary NIC which I use for networking the 2 comps together.

    As for the client comp, I have enable TCP/IP and set it to obtain IP and DNS automatically.

    The server comp can surf the net without any problems but the client comp cant.

    Can somebody help me with this ?

    Thank you.

    hmm....change your local network card from to

    and if that doesn't fix it then change your other computer to not get ip/dns automaticly and just hardcode in as your gateway and as your ip and as you DNS server...that will definitly work....

    IP :
    Subnet :
    Gateway :

    Preferred DNS Server :

    The ICS still does not work.

    I suggest doing a search on the Old 3ds forums as this was a topic detailed many times by members.

    Yea...something is up because with those settings there is no way this shouldn't work...I would question that you actually have sharing checked...=)

    Can you try to just use DHCP for the adapter that is serving the connection to the other machines which you previously set as Of course, let the other (internet connected) one alone, but use DHCP for the sharing connection.

    I believe that there is a small DHCP allocator and WINS proxy, DNS proxy and so forth built in to all version of Windows past 98. DHCP should be fine for your internet network, but you will probably find that its anyway once its been DHCP allocated.

    Use DHCP on the client computers as well. Remember to enable ICS in the internet that HAS the internet connection, not in the one you are sharing it with (i.e. goes to DHCP and ICS is enabled in the other card which is directly internet connected.)
