    Hi,

    I use two computers, one with the Internet connection and the other computer connects to this computer to get its Internet connection as well. The connection has been working for a couple of days and now its just messed up and the second computer can't get its Internet access, though it can connect to the network. I also don't understand why there is a lease obtained and lease expires part as well. Thanks for your help.

    I hate ICS. It's a pain in the behind.

    I think that the Default Gateway on the first machine is missing, though I don't know if that's the problem but it's worth a try. Add that in (it's the same address as the IP address)

    Is it possible to get a cheap router and put inbetween? It's a time saver. :)

    As for the Lease Obtained and Expires, that's common. Basically the DHCP will 'lease' the IP address to a device, and when the time expires, then it will lease the IP address to another machine. Most cable companies has theirs set to an hour i think. This is to make sure that no IP address would be tied up to a device that is seldom used.

    I agree. I used to have a ICS network. It seems like ehaven when you get a router and it all just works first time, every time.
