Computer 1 - Desktop - XP - wired to D-Link Rounter
Computer 2 - Laptop - Vista - wireless
I use a Telus Mobility Cell phone tethered via UBS port for my internet connection - basically it is like an aircard.
Anyway - I have my network set up, all computers can see and communicate with each other. I tried seting up ICS on the vista computer and now under network and sharing show devices I see my desktop, my laptop, my router, and internet gateway device. However, I can not access internet on the desktop or the tivo. When I look at the full network map I see laptop - wireless to Dlink and then no connection to interent (line with X). Then I see desktop - switch - dlink.
Is what I am trying to do something the is possible? Maybe I need to use the desktop as the main computer connected to the internet? Any ideas would be great.
Some of the websites that I have researched this on mention a special cable - crossover cable - do I need this?
