Hello,
I am getting internet from my neighbor through a usb wireless nic and have enabled ics on that connection. What i would like to do from here is plug a cable from my wired lan to the internet plug on the wireless router to create a wireless network with internet in the house. The problem seems to be that dhcp cannot give the wireless router an ip address. Can anyone help?

post the results of a ipconfig /all for review.
I need to confirm your ip addressing is correct for ics.

a better way to hookup is as follows;
connect to the router via patch cable.
assign it a static ip of 192.168.0.254 so you can manage it
disable its dhcp server
buy a crossover cable
using this cable connect the wired nic to a LAN [not wan] interface.

You have now created a wireless switch.
Dhcp will flow from your wired nic thru the router to whatever device is connected.

Thanks for the reply.
I know how to hook up a hub.
What I want to do is use the wireless router to serve internet wirelessly throught my house on a seperate network using the internet connection from my neighbor. Windows 7 does it for me but i want to know how to do it in xp. I don't have the ipconfig /all from the xp but here is the one from my 7.

Too much for me to understand but it works.
How hard can it be to use ipv4 adressing to let the wireless router know there is an internet connection to the wan and serve it through the lan and wirelessly?
thanks for your help!!!
