Hello.

I have an XP machine which is connected to the Internet through a router. A PDA is connected to the XP machine directly(without an AP). Although I have enabled Internet sharing on the adapter connected to the router(on XP machine), but the PDA can't load any pages. What's wrong with my work?

XP Machine: TOSHIBA Satellite Notebook PC, Windows XP Home Edition
Mobile Device(PDA): i-mate K-JAM, Windows Mobile 5
Router: D-Link ADSL 2+ Router, XP machine connected to the router by means of a Category 5 cable.

Thanks for any help!

cant you just use active sync? It should allow you to browse if you are connected VIA active sync.

It does allow me to browse, but when it recognizes the phone. And as far as I know, ActiveSync does not support Wi-Fi. Does it? My version is 4.0.
It only shows the phone when I connect it using USB cable, and I can browse the Web in that case.

Okay, now I see. So you have an Ad-Hoc connection to the computer and are using ICS to gain access to the internet. Well, to be totaly honest with you I have never used ICS(Successfully) I usally get agrivated with it and by a switch! Sorry.

Internet Connection Sharing is difficult enough to set up with computers. I've not seen anyone set it up with a PDA. It may not even be supported.
