    Network setup is cable modem > router > connected to router is one XP and one ME. The question is did I need to use Internet Connection Sharing Wizard from XP? I have used it and the XP works fine, the ME can ping addresses but browsing with IE6 does NOT display any pages.



    :rolleyes:

    You do NOT use ICS in any flavor with a broadband router! You want to uninstall any traces of it post haste! :)

    I believe you also need to go into the ME configuration and just set TCP/IP to automatically obtain it's IP and DNS addresses.

    And because your router and ICS are giving out DHCP addresses, you are going to get some weird issues with that.
