    I networked my pc's running WinMe peer to peer.One fine day the ICS all of a sudden stopped working. I ran the sometimes useless Help. Help told me that I had the DCHP service turned off. It said to turn on the DHCP service:

    Insert your Windows CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive on the host computer.
    On the desktop, double-click My Computer.
    Double-click your CD-ROM drive, double-click the Tools folder, double-click the Mtsutil folder, and then double-click the ICS folder.
    Right-click the Dhcp-on file, and then click Install.
    Restart the host computer.

    HA! There is no such folder on that disk, not that I can find.
    The Win Me was pre loaded. Where am I supposed to find the file?

    When you use the Help and Support Troubleshooter for Internet Connection Sharing in Windows Millennium Edition (Me), the troubleshooter may instruct you to turn Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) on by going to the Tools\Mtsutil\ICS folder on your Windows Me CD-ROM, but the folder is missing.
    The ICS folder is not included on the Windows Me CD-ROM.
    WARNING: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

    To resolve this issue:
    Click Start, click Run, type regedit.exe in the Open box, and then click OK.
    Locate and click the following registry key:

    Click the EnableDHCP value in the right pane.
    On the Edit menu, click Modify. In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK.

    Note that you can turn DHCP off by changing the data value to 0 (zero).
    On the Registry menu, click Exit.

    I tried but HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services is as far as it goes, there is no \ICSharing\Settings\General
    Not there maybe?
    I guess I will try uninstalling the network and starting over. (argh)

    OK here goes........
    I uninstalled and reinstall communications in add/remove programs.
    I started up in safe mode and removed all the network adapters.
    Rebooted and reinstalled everything.
    Went back into regedit and the ics sharing folder was there, and the value was already set to 1 and enabled. When I reinstalled the ICS I got the wizard and I noticed something different. It asked for my network adapter for home, which I finally found out which one that is by the way, and asked which device connects mt to the internet. It was a choice between the ethernet adapter or dial up. I chose dial up. Maybe thats what was wrong. I won't be able to tell till I remove that dratted w32\Dupater virus off the other pc. :D
    Its been an eventful weekend.
    heh heh heh
