    I Have my PC running WinXP as a host computer on my home network. My sons computer is the 'client computer hooked up to mine via the network hub. Printer and file sharing works fine.

    I want my son to be able to use the internet on his pc, using my pc as the host computer dialled uo to the internet. I am using AOL.

    When I follow the instruction to use Internet Connection Sharing and select the dial up that I want to share (AOL Dial-up - do not delete). I cannot do anything else that the ICS instructions tell me. For example with my AOL Dial Up selected (for sharing), when under Network Tasks I click Change Settings of this connetion nothing happens..I get no dialogue box !!. I should get an advanced tab, that allows me to allow other network users to connect through my internet connection etc etc.

    Is it not possible to use ICS with AOL, or is there some other way ?

    Any help will be greatfully recieved.

    Thanks BritMan

    No, AOL cannot be used with ICS.
