win 2000 adv server sp 4 trying to connect to win me. computers can ping one another but i can't seem to get them to see each other on the network. internet connection sharing is enabled but i can't get online on me computer. i'm using usb to connect via cable modem to connect to net from host 2000. i have net card for connection to me computer. instead of running dhcp i opted to set up the net card on me computer with all the localized address it needed. i tried to do this with windows help file but i don't believe i have the configuration right. i noticed dhcp is enabled on my usb connection. i did not do this. is that there to gain access to road runner automatic ip configuration? irregardless i tried to let me obtain its own address and that did not work either. please help!!!

Lets see the output of ipconfig /all on each machine.

On the server did you setup ICS or did you setup NAT routing.

ok i got the computers to see one another and share files. but i can't get on the net from the client computer-me. i am running a firewall, zone alarm. i read in the help file that zone alarm does not support ics although i turned off the firewall for a minute, but i still could not connect. i can upgrade to zone alarm pro that will allow ics but that's a moot point right now if i can't get on. i need someone to make sure i have done everything i need to do. here is a list of things i have done and questions about others that i have not.

lan 3 connection internet- cable modem thru usb
lan 2 network adapter- internet conn sharing enabled
ip address 192.168.0.1 subnet 255.255.255.0
gateway..... wins..... dns.....
net card-me comp
ip address 192.168.0.254 subnet 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.0.1 wins.... dns 192.168.0.1

does my problem lie within internet explorer options? lan settings? what should i configure exactly for both computers in lan settings?

do i need to set a gateway and dns on net card for lan 2 on host(2000 adv server)?

do i have the correct ip's for me client computer?

can i use ics or do i have to nat route? if so, then how do i setup and config nat routing?

do i need to enable internet conn sharing on me computer in windows add/remove programs?

i think i covered about everything. thank you so much in advance to anyone that can help me out.
