I'm running ICS with a Vista host giving Internet access to an XP
client, and it works fine.
Here are some tests that can help you find the problem. I'd try it
first on wired Ethernet, to eliminate any extra complications from
1. On the Vista host computer:
a. Go to Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center.
b. Click "Manage network connections".
c. Click the local area network connection.
d. Click Details. It should show:
IPv4 IP Address: 192.168.0.1
IPv4 Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
IPv4 Default Gateway: none
IPv4 DNS Server = none
2. On the XP client computer:
a. Go to Control Panel > Network and Internet Connections >
b. Right click the local area network connection.
c. Click Status > Support > Details. It should show:
IP Address: 192.168.0.x (1<x<255)
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1
DNS Server = 192.168.0.1
3. If #1 and #2 are right, open a command prompt window on XP and
enter these lines. Each one should get four replies:
4. If #1-#3 are right, enter these addresses in Internet Explorer on
XP. Both should take you to the Google web page:
