Hi
I have rescently upgraded my aol subscription to platinum on 2.2mbps. i have 2 computers that i want to run on the internet but i am having a big problem.
i have got my computer running on the internet perfectly, specs if needed:
p4 3.0ghz
1gb ram
ati radeon 9600xt 256mn
win xp pro sp2

the other pc is a:
p4 2.26ghz
384mb ram
ati - somethin rubbish
win xp pro sp2

now the second pc is able to connect to teamspeak and to any server i may host on my pc so it must be getting some sort of internet connection, this is only after i assign it an ip of
192.168.1.25
Gateway 192.168.1.254
DNS 192.168.1.254
these setting are the same as my pc apart from the ip mine is 192.168.1.64
but as soon as i try to connect to such programs as msn messenger or try to browse the internet it doesnt work.
when i take all of the ip settings away and try to get it to assing itself an ip it doesnt work and says limeted or no conictivity
can anyone help?
thanks in advance Jay

Check your firewall setting are allowing your 2nd pc access.

Your IP addressing should be something like:
192.168.1.1 & 192.168.1.2

Presumably, as you haven't mentioned a Router, you are trying to run "Internet Connection Sharing"?

As far as I'm aware, Windows "Internet Connection Sharing" doesn't work with AOL, but if someone knows otherwise, I'd be delighted to be proved wrong.

In any case, the IP addresses you detail show that you haven't set up ICS - if you had, the "host" PC's network adapter would have the IP address 192.168.0.1 (this *never* varies) and the "client" PC would have an address in the same 192.168.0.xxx subnet.

Sorry, ignore that. I see you did refer to a Speedtouch 576, which presumably is a router :-(

I believe you are correct in your assumption about AOL and ICS.
