    just tried to install a router between my two comps both winxp.but when i set it up on the host pc it comes up with :

    "cannot complete the network setup wizard

    other computers cannot connect to the internet through this computer

    in addition to its internet connection this computer must have a connection to you network"

    before that it said i have more than 1 network adapter so i disabled the 1394 net adapter.

    any suggestions?

    set one of your pc's to:
    IP: 192.168.0.100
    SUBNET: 255.255.255.0
    GW: 192.168.0.1

    open IE browse to 192.168.0.1 & setup your router
    with default settings winXP should be set to obtain IP address automatically, you shouldn't have to configure much.

    i think when i connected my router i somehow lost my ip address i had to disconnect my router and connect my modem back up and ring my ips`s support line to help me get my ip address back.maybe that was my problem that i didnt have a ip address for my router? im gonna give it another try tomorrow.
