Hi to all,
having trouble net work bridging between pc with win98 with dial up connection and laptop with xp, laptop has lan and firewire with network bridge.
Xp laptop will not connect to the internet.
(xp)lan ok but no ip address.
(xp) network bridge has 169 ip.
have run ics on the laptop set up to connect to the internet on other computer.

can share file ok between the 2 computers just not the net. really need to get this working as we got 1meg cable modem coming shortly.

any ideas:confused:

Do yourself a favor and spend $40 for a broadband router! You'll have both of the systems connected and running in a flash, and you won't have to tinker with ICS and having the host computer turned on to use the Internet.

I am using ICS on my home network, 2 desktops and one laptop. As long as I have static IP address under TCP/IP on all comps and have the host comp IP address under Preferred DNS server on the XP it works fine.
