    OK my computer is connected an ADSL connection, and 3 others to mine... which were automaticaly connected to the internet since i enabled the "sharing" option... it went well but until just recently, all the 3 suddenly couldn't connect to the internet, but we can still share our files... dont you think it's weird? it just went out like that... i dont know why, hope you guys can help..

    oh ya and another weird phenomenon is... that... although we can share our files, we cant play LAN games, after that problem occured that is...

    I tried "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties" and i've set my IP to 192.168.0.1 to mine and 255.255.255.0 as my subnet mask.
    The others with 192.168.0.XXX as their IP and with the same subnet mask as mine... yup we can share files but they cant connect to the internet, and play LAN games..

    THanks in advance... ;)


    EDIT: I forgot to ask something... :) Is there a program that actually devides the amount of connection speed to others evenly? For example im having a 384kbps connection and devide it into 4 that means each can only surf around 96kbps?

    Which version of Windows are you running on each PC? Can you do a start > run > cmd >ipconfig /all on each machine and paste the contents here. ICS should be giving out IP addresses so you really shouldn't have to set static IP addresses on each machine.

    I personally would uninstall ICS and use AnalogX's Proxy server or buy a cheap Broadband router. You can get them for Under $30 these days. I actually got a decent one for $15 a couple months ago.

    We still need to see everything from ipconfig /all There are other things we need to see from that output.

    If you have all your computers connected to the router, set them to Obtain an IP address automatically and Obtain DNS addresses automatically. Your router should be giving out IP addresses.

    I think the only way to do that would be to run a really high end Proxy server like Squid(Unix) or Microsofts Proxy Server.
