    I have enabled ICS on my XP machine that has the modem attached to it and I enabled my other machine on the network to get its IP via DHCP. I get on the other machine and run a ipconfig /all from the command prompt to verify it got a IP and it did. I pinged www.yahoo.com and got a response. But...when I opened my browser...it would not go to http://www.yahoo.com. It says it can't find the page. I verified that I could ping the site still but still no luck on the webpage. I think double-checked the IP configuration on the ICS box and remembered I had put in static IP addresses of some public DNS servers. I then put these in on the other machine but still no luck. Anyone have any ideas?

    norton personal firewall 2002 and norton internet security 2002 have always worked well for me.... on the free side, zone alarm works with connection sharing.... good luck.
