Our problem is this:- I have a BTHomeHub2, running just one pc (my own). I would like to share my connection with my neighbours, in fact, i did until recently until they reformatted their machine. I run Vista, they XP pro....systems are a Lenovo thinkcentre and Acer repectively. I have the Acer.
Now it seems our permitted shared connecting is not happening anymore (they use a Belkin net-adapter i might add) Try as i might, i cannot seem to get their machine to see my hub, which it was able to do before the re-formatting took place. Their machine is now asking for network proxy settings? whatever these are, i have absolutely no idea, and, having tried various things am sadly NOT being very successful in granting them this permitted access.
Any help/ideas or assistance would be greatly appreciated. I have used this forum before and am a regular visitor, having being helped by Essexboy in the past.
I would like to reiterate, that i DO permit this neighbour, i want them to share with me the Hub connection, there is no problem there. I would appreciate some input:- from the beginnings stages to connection itself but i don't know where we are going wrong, we just are!!
Thanks everyone and all take care please.X
