    (solved at last!)
    I can't get Internet connection sharing to work, it used to, but now it doesn't. I uninstalled all the adapters and went into add/remove and unistalled and reinstalled communicatios.
    I have all the options in communications selected.
    Here is whats installed in the network properties.
    Network Properties

    Client for Microsoft Windows
    Dial-up adapter
    ICS
    NDIS 1394 Net Adapter
    Realtek RTL8139(A)-based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter

    protocol
    Internet Connection Sharing (protocol)-> Dial-up adapter
    Internet Connection Sharing (protocol)->Internet Connection Sharing
    Internet Connection Sharing (protocol)->NDIS 1394 Net Adapter
    Internet Connection Sharing (protocol)->Realtek RTL8139(A)-based PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter

    NetBEUI->Dial-up adapter
    NetBEUI->Internet Connection Sharing
    NetBEUI->Realtek RTL8139(A)-based PCI Fast Ethernet

    TCP/IP (home))->Realtek RTL8139(A)-based PCI Fast Ethernet
    (198.162.255.1 255.255.255.0 is the IP settingsfor host, 198.162.255.2 255.255.255.0 for client)

    TCP/IP(shared)->Dial-up adapter
    TCP/IP->Internet Connection Sharing
    TCP/IP)->NDIS 1394 Net Adapter
    File and printer sharing for Microsoft Networks

    Should I enable DNS somewhere? I don't know where I would do that, my ethernet adapter, or the Net adapter. I am still confused on which is which. I ran the wizared, and chose the Realtek RTL8139(A)-based PCI Fast Ethernet as the adapter that goes to the internet and the NDIS1394 as Network adapter. I am still learning on this networking thing. I looked in winipfcg. The settings found are thus....

    HOST Info

    DNS SERVER 216.193.128.11 which is correct for my ISP
    Node type - broadcast
    IP Proxy enabled

    Ethernet Info

    ICS Share adapter
    Adapter address 00-E0-18-CB-54-64
    IP address 192.168.255.1
    Subnet mask 255.255.255.0

    PPP adapter Info
    44-45-53-54-00-00
    IP address 216.193.160.100
    subnet mask 255.255.255.0
    default gateway 216.193.160.100
    DHCP server 255.255.255.255

    THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU !!!!!!

    After all the hair pulling, it was as simple as telling the client PC to automatically find the IP. :D

    You are a lifesaver!
