Internet connection sharing

I have setup a wireless network with my 2000 machine and the kids ME machine everything works except the internet connection on the ME machine via the LAN, I get a DNS error when trying to connect doesn't give you any more details.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

---------------------------
Can you connect to the 2000 machine across the LAN (try \\<machine name>\c$)? Did you use the ICS wizard or do it manually?

Basically your ME machine should be set to use DHCP in the TCP/IP settings. This will allow it to automatically pick up all the detail it needs from the 2000 machine. Are you using a router that is also dishing out DHCP leases? If so, this might be your problem.
