I have a wireless router connected to a cable modem. I have several PCs with wireless nic's that work fine, one of which (I'll call it the server) is also connected via crossover cable to another PC (the client) that doesn't have a wireless nic. I have ICS enabled on the server, and the client is able to access the internet just fine. However, the client is unable to view the other workgroup PCs, it can only see the server. The server is able to view all other workgroup PCs. I know that the problem is the server and other PCs are on 192.168.2.X subnet and the client is on 192.168.0.X. I have tried bridging the connections but XP's ICS is not compatible with the bridge function. I think the route command could solve the problem but I don't know how to use it. Any advice?
