Win 98 SE/Me ICS Configuration for PPPOE DSL
Last Updated: 7/4/01

Q. How does one configure Windows 98 Second Edition (Win SE)/Millennium Edition (Win Me) Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to share a DSL connection that uses PPP Over Ethernet (PPPOE)?

 A.  If ICS is already installed, it has probably chosen the Network Adapter that connects to the DSL MODEM as the shared connection…  Uninstall ICS as follows: Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, Windows Setup Tab, highlight Communications, Details, uncheck Internet Connection Sharing, OK, and restart Windows when prompted.   Repeat the preceding steps and check the Internet Connection Sharing checkbox to run the ICS Wizard to reinstall ICS.   Choose the Dial-up adapter as the adapter to connect to the Internet, the shared adapter.  Fire-up the Internet Explorer, click Tools in the main menu, Options, Connections, Always dial my default connection, In the Dialup (and Virtual Private Network—Me) Settings, be sure the correct connection to your ISP is set as the default.  Configuration of other browsers should be somewhat similar.
