    I totally do not understand your setup. Are you trying to set up an ad-hoc wireless network between two computers? Or are you trying to set up an infrastructure network with a wireless router dishing out the IP addresses? If the former, the IPs indicate you may have succeeded, but we'd need more info to be sure. If you're using a router, the computers are not getting IP from it.

    In either case, make sure Windows' firewalls are disabled and 3rd party firewalls uninstalled until you get the network operating satisfactorily.

    well i got a GATEWAY computer, it share's its i-net connection.
    i got 2 wireless usb stick's
    1 is installed on mij computer and 1 is installed op the GATEWAY computer.
    there is no acces point or router....
    i want to go on the net using te wireless usb stick.
    it got them connected and they seems to react on ping.
    and ik got the i-net connection shared. and disabled the xp firewall.
    but i have a norton firewall on my computer
    but i do not get an connection for i-net.
    havent tested if i could acces any network file or folder i will try that later

    but im not getting internet connection from it :confused:
    btw is also route's i-net trough a wired network.
    to my pc and my brother's pc.

    but still it must be possible to route it...

    What you have got here is two seperate networks. One of which (the wireless one), is using the 169.254.*.* range. The other (the wired one) is presumably using the 192.168.*.* range that Windows Internet Connection Sharing generally uses. The problem is that there is no connection between the two networks. To acheive this you need to configure your Gateway machine as a router that can transfer traffic from one to the other.

    If you are running Windows 2000 or XP you should be able to do this. I haven't tried it before, but this link looks useful:


    Hope that helps.

    well....im just giving it up...kind of ;)
    i used VNC server to controll the gateway and check setting's etc.
    and then i screwed it up and i lost internet connection in my pc.
    went down and changed some setting's...so i would have a connection again.
    so i set up again to share internet but then i saw i could select a connection to wich one it would share it...so i chose wireless..and it work's...
    well tomorow im gonna buy another usb stick for my brother :p
    and he may go wireless 2 :rolleyes: as long he still is here
    (so he wont get mad at me)

    conclusion seems that i can share 1 internet connection to 2 network's
    solution merge them :cool:
    Thank's anyway
    it would have been a great challenge if it would gotten to work.
