    Have you rebooted the laptop after you went to the other OS on the PC side? Dual bootuing and using ICS is something I would never want to take on. Have you checked the iPCONFIG's on both PC and laptop with both different OS's loaded to see the differences?

    Its not like theres a ton of ways to mess up the install of XP. I guess it oculd be done but if its up and running then you should be set. You have internet connectivity on the PC in XP? If so then theres not much short of ICS or drivers for the second card in the desktop that may be having problems.

    If you haven't yet done the (4) ipconfig /all that StumpedTechy asked about, this would be a good time to do them. If there are differences that you don't understand, post them here with appropriate labels.

    If you would be so kind as to tell us what the problem was, perhaps it will help others in the future doing searches ;)

    You can also mark the thread solved using the THREAD TOOLS drop down menu :)
