A friend of mine got a new computer today (HP :p) and I was trying to setup a wired network in which the internet was shared. The computer directly hooked up to the internet (admin? maybe not...) was once hooked up to his old computer with a crossover cable and the internet worked great. Now, it first said "Limited or no connectivity" from his new computer to the admin comp. I switched IP's to 192.168.254.1 (admin) and 192.168.254.2 (HP). The Limited connectivity went away, but it still doesn't go to the internet. I'm not sure what to do now, and any help is appreciated. Thanks!

If you're using ICS, you can't set the address on the ICS machine, you MUST configure ICS and let it configure the address. The other machine should just be configured for automatic IP and DNS addresses, and it will connect.
