I am trying to set up a wireless network in my apartment. I have a desktop pc with a network card, laptop with network card and wireless network card, and a d-link access point. Both computers are running XP SP2.

I have my broadband modem plugged into the usb port of my desktop, and the access point plugged into the network port. The laptop should then gain access to shared resources on the desktop and vice-versa.

I have no problem sharing files between the 2 computers. It works perfectly in both directions. But I cannot get an internet connection on the laptop. I have internet connection sharing set up on the desktop, but the laptop just wont connect.

Any help greatly appreciated.

On each machine, do this:

Open a DOS window and type:

IPCONFIG /ALL >C:\RESULT.TXT

Open C:\RESULT.TXT with Notepad and copy/paste the entire results here.

Does your broadband modem have an Ethernet port?

Is your D-Link device a Wireless Access Point or a Wireless Router.

I would recommend a Wireless Router or a Router with your Wireless Access Point rather than the ICS configuration that you are attemping.

Just my advice for fewer headaches and for an easier network configuration.

The broadband modem does have an ethernet port, however I connected it using USB so I had the ethernet port on the desktop free to connect the access point, which is just an access point.

I didnt want to get a DSL wireless router because I might be upgrading to ADSL in a few weeks, and would have to fork out again for an ADSL router.

A router for DSL is going to be the same as one for ADSL so that wouldn't be a problem.

For ICS to work correctly, your NIC in the desktop should be set to IP 192.168.0.1 and on the laptop you're missing the default gateway and DNS server. Both should be set to 192.168.0.1

Thats worked perfectly. Thanks very much.

I'm not actually sure if my broadband modem would work through a router anyway. I seem to have to install a driver for it before it will work.
