Can not enable Internet Connection Sharing
Hi,

I am having real problems with trying to enable ICS (I have Vista Home
Premium).

I have a wireless network I can see in the Network and Sharing centre, when
I choose it's properties and go to sharing I tick the "Allow other machine to
use this connection ...." box, but the machine return with the message "An
error occurred when trying to enable Internet Connection Sharing".

BTW - I am logged in as Admin when I am trying to do this.

Does anybody have any ideas ? Please ?

Thanks in advance,

Tagleboo

Re: Can not enable Internet Connection Sharing
Hi Robert,

Sorry for taking a while to reply.

OK, here is my setup :

My PC has a wireless USB adaptor to my wireless router (obviously plugged
into a PC USB port), so internet connection is not a problem. I don't have
any other network cards in my PC, just the on-board network connection.

I hope this helps ?

Thanks,

Graham
