    Hi!..again.

    Now this time I have an ics problem I cant solve. I have two xp machines. Cable connected directly to this main pc. One hub with a second nic card connecting from this one to the hub and then the second pc connects to the hub. long story short....this worked fine for a long time til yesterday. Second pc just wont connect to the inet. So, i go to the network adapter here on this one...and i cant enable firewall or ics. i get the error mesage


    "the dependancy service or group failed to start"


    totally at a loss now. Not sure why its doin this or how to fix this. Anyone out here in xpland have any ideas at all?

    Thanks guys for any help.

    you probably installed something or did something to disable it, if it only started yesterday, I would backup any new files or stuff u did since then, and do a system restore back before this nonsense started.

    Buy a router and get rid of ICS all together.

    :cool:

    I am a complete network n00b, but try powering down both machines, rebooting and try running the netowrking wizard on each machine..
