    well...where to start? i have 2 xp pro puters, and am trying to share internet via cable modem....

    originally had dsl(zoomtown) and networked fine...the dsl service pissed me off, and i switched to cable(roadrunner)...hooked host up via usb, and client through a hub using ethernet...ran network wizard, viola! everything is cool in ics land...zoomtown tech shows up and switched the wall jack(that was the dsl prob), and i hooked client up so we could determine if it was working(which it did) well i plugged the client back into the hub(with the cable service) and now cannot get the ics re-established...the connection wizard will not complete...tried to manually(with out any help from the wizard) reconnect the two but to no avail...recieved an error 1068 once...tried all the solutions i encountered both at the microsoft knowledge database, and using the network trouble shooter....should be this difficult seeing as how i had it working before...even went as far as re-upgrading to win xp...any suggestions?

    Most of us do not recommend using ICS to share an Internet Connection. If your cable modem has a Ethernet port buy a cheap home router. Look at my signature for the latest cheap router deal. I have RR so I would assume your router has an Ethernet port.

    If you dont want to spend money then try some of the software based Proxy servers to share your Internet Connection.

    Analog X Proxy Server

    Free Proxy

    Proxy +

    Please buy a router.
