Having recently purchased a networking crossover cable, i have connected my PC to my Notebook. I can transfer files accross both computers via a LAN connection and also play games over the network but fail to use the PC's internet capabilities.
The PC has a DSL connection to the internet and i wish to use the internet on my Notebook through this connection. I have conifigured all IP address' and Subnet masks, default gateways, DNS servers etc but cannot share the PC's internet connection.
Under the 'advanced DSL properties' menu is a 'tick box' stating 'Allow other network users to connect through this computers internet
connection', having ticked the box and selected the LAN connection i receive,
'cannot enable shared access
Error 1060: The specified service does not exist as an installed service'
I have tweaked firewalls and everything on both computer systems, searched error messages over the net... the lot. The problem persists.
I hope someone can help them.
Will give them a link in ther PM to this thread
