Internet Connection Sharing Problem


Internet Connection Sharing Problem

Hi all,

I have an ADSL modem from Plusnet. I tried to set up a home network using Internet Connection Sharing, in which one of the three laptops is connected to the modem. The other two are equipped with a D-Link wireless card. I am using a D-Link access point that is connected to the first laptop (ie also connected to the ADSL modem).

I am able to see and access to shared drives between the three laptops through the home network. However, I am not able to surf internet except for the one that has a direct connection to the ADSL modem. I tried to enable ICS on the Wip Tech connection, but I get this error

"Error 765: ICS cannot be enabled. A LAN connection is already configured with the IP address that is required for automatic IP addressing."

I just cannot move forward. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks.

RE: Internet Connection Sharing Problem

If you have specified the ip address - manual input,
you have to set up an internt gate way manualy.
