Wondering if anyone could help me...
I've got two computers, one connected via BT Broadband (ADSL). Installed a wireless router and two wireless adapters. Having problems... Both computers can access the wireless profile and connect to the router, but cannot see each other (or share the internet connection). Uninstalled zone alarm (doesn't work with ICS), and have tried messing with windows firewall also. Make of adapters/router: Sitecom. I am using the xp sp2 built in wireless config stuff. Computers don't even seem to see each other on the MSHOME domain. Also wise to note that I tried PING against from client to host and got 50% loss.

Ok. Now sorted the file sharing, have installed netbeui protocol, which has solved it.

Problem still remains with ICS though. I've read that ICS sets the IP of internal LAN card on the host to 192.168.0.1. Trouble is, my router is 192.168.123.254. Is this a problem? All i'm getting is a gateway that shows a status of connected at 1bps.

How come your using ICS?

Why not connect the ADSL to the WAN port on the router, configure the router to get online and then connect the computers wireless to the router.

Thanks for the idea, but the reason i haven't connected to the WAN port is that it is a usb modem, and an ethernet wan port. I've solved the problem now, as i've returned the router and swapped for another one. It's worked first time.
