    Hey,
    I have 2 computers networked together I want to share the internet between them.
    I have been using ICS for a long time with no probs. But I have been become unhealthly addicted to a game called anarchy online, along with my brother. The game makers have reported that ICS doesn't work correctly with the game. This means usually one of us can't manage to log on.

    Anyway, I am looking for an alternative, because apparently all other internet sharing programs work fine with the game.

    I have tried sygate, winproxy and various others but I just can't figure them out.

    If someone could post a short explination on how to get one of these programs (or a diff prog) to work it would be great!

    Both comps are running Windows XP and all that really needs to be shared is printing, internet and being able to play the game!

    Thanks in advance,
    Gamester

    If your using dsl or cable, get yourself a cable/dsl router, Linksys makes a good one and so does netgear.

    If your using dialup, your pretty much screwed. :(

    You're not screwed, there are alternatives. I would recommend Winroute but it didn't work in XP last time I checked. :( But there are other router softwares that do. Try searching through www.tucows.com or www.download.com
