    I have a small network, 3pcs, 2 running Win98, 1 running W2KPro and a server running NT Server 4.
    I want to use the W2K pc as an internet connection and using ICS hare that connection with the 2 Win98 pcs.
    The NT server was using DCHP, but I turned it off.
    The W2K pc gas the IP of 192.168.0.1 which is correct. The Win98 pcs, when set to IP auto, come on the network as IP169.xxx.xxx.xxx. Other times the Win98 pc find the correct IP addy of 192.068.0.xxx.
    This is driving me crazy as well as costing me time and money.
    Any ideas on how to slove this problem?
    Also, when I set the IPs to 192.168.0.xxx it will not connect.
    Thanks,
    Dave:confused:

    Are you connecting these machine through a hub? If so, you may want to check and make sure you're not using crossover cables. That would cause the machines not to connect regardless of the ip address you are using. That's also the first place to check when connections fail.

    Using a hub, the rest of the network works ok, to the server. Also, I cab ping all pcs when I set the IP
    s on the same range.

    I think you'd have better luck doing the connection sharing from the server, perhaps using a proxy server.
