    Hi all, Im not a big expert on networking so apologies in advance.

    I seem to be having a weird problem setting up Internet sharing across 2 computers.

    My setup is as follows: The host pc has 2 network cards. One is connected to a static IP and the other I have setup to go out to a LAN which then links to my second pc.

    The first network card contains all the static IP information provided to me.
    The second network card is setup as a static IP,
    I have setup Internet sharing on the first card to give access to the LAN.

    All ok so far. When I turn on the second pc, it all works great, connects via the host and can browse the network fine.

    The problem is on the host. I basically can't connect to the internet using IE and just get a standard page not found error. I know I can connect to the internet because Skype works a treat.

    The weirdest thing of all is that every so often when trying I can get to google and search which is fine but if I try to open up another page it just gives an error.

    I must say again that the second pc works fine.

    A few things that may help, the host pc is a brand new out of the box pc and has only windows firewall which i have turned off with no effect. Also, there is no virus on the pc which I have checked. A final thing, I know it is not faulty because if i set it up as a standalone pc, it works fine on the internet.

    Can anybody help, it really is sending me crazy
