Hey, I posted about a week ago about what turns out to be a SP2 problem. Anyway, i have set up a network with a host computer with 2 ethernet ports, one for my DSL modem and another to a 5-port switch(not a router). Now i can share files and folders with no problems. Yet when i try to share my Broadband Connection it seem to dysfunction. All the LAN connections are all enabled etc, yet now i cant share files, and when I go into "View workgroup computers" I only see the computer that i am using. The same thing with both computers. I have tried bridging the connections again and sharing the entire bridge, which doesnt work. I am also unsure which LAN Connection to share, the one that goes to my modem, or the one going to my switch?

Use ICS to share the connection going to your modem. You do not need to bridge network connections.
