HELP! ICS wizard question
LocoSmurf Aug-22-02 09:02 AM
My gateway computer is windows 98SE, the client is windows ME. I have them connected via a Linksys 5 port etherfast 10/100 dual speed workgroup switch. I finaly got it to where they "see" one another and access files (took me forever I'm new at this stuff, the info on this site is great!). Now I would like to share the internet connection. The first time I ran the ICS wizard it messed up my connection to the internet, I could connect but I could not access the internet (the gatway computer). I removed ICS, my dial-up adapter, and started over. Now I have access again to the internet. I am connected to the internet via DSL (ADSL) useing a modem. This is a dial-up, I have an ISDN phone connection, if that maters, it is separate (split off using NTBA box). I am in Germany using T-Online they are the only option for high speed right now (if you want to call DSL high speed, I had Cable back in the states). Before I run the ICS wizard again my question is..... do I select dial-up connection or high-speed connection? The dial-up reads "for example, using a modem and telephone line or using ISDN", and the high-speed connection reads "for example, using a network adapter, ADSL, or Ethernet". Now to clarify, the modem I am using is like a cable modem that sits on your desk connected through an ethernet card to the computer. can some one please help I am so confused. %-)

I would treat it like a cable MODEM and use the Ethernet adapter going to the MODEM. You need two network adapters in the computer for ICS. Other alternatives are at http://duxcw.com/faq/ics/waysshare.htm. I used to have a DATEX-P connection before there was an Internet. Larry

Thank you for the response. I've done it both ways now. when I use the ICS wizard and choose High speed conection, it does not work. My gateway logs on and connects but not the client. In the network configuration I do not get the "TCP/IP (shared)->Linksys LNEPCI II PCI Ethernet Adapter". When I choose Dial-up It does not work still. My gateway logs on but I can not connect to the internet In the network configuration I get a "TCP/IP->(shared)Dial-Up Adapter" , but that is not what I specified, I specified the "Linksys LNEPCI II PCI Ethernet Adapter". It shows a (shared) on my dial-up adapter. Please Help!
This is what I have in my network configuration right now:

Client for Microsoft Networks
Dial-Up Adapter
Linksys LNEPCI II PCI Ethernet Adapter
SMC EZ Card 10/100 PCI (SMC1211 Series)
T-DSL-Adapter (T-Online)
NDISWAN-> T-DSL-Adapter (T-Online)
T-DSL-Protocol (T-Online)-> Linksys LNEPCI II PCI Ethernet Adapter
TCP/IP-> Dial-Up Adapter
TCP/IP-> Linksys LNEPCI II PCI Ethernet Adapter
TCP/IP-> SMC EZ Card 10/100 PCI (SMC1211 Series)
File and printer sharing for Microsoft Networks

I think you may be running PPPoE or PPPoA.
I have not used those kinds of connections. The following may be useful:
