    How can i get rid of the single IP address XP uses for ICS sharing? Everytime i enable it, it sets it right to Lately i've been having things appearing in network connections like direct connections made to my comp called "the internet 2" and it's a 10mb connection. But everytime i try to change the IP of my host and client comps and re-enable ICS it sets it back to that IP and says something about losing connections with other comps if that's a static IP. It's annoying me badly, any help would be greatly appriciated. BTW i've tried ZoneAlarm and such and had alot of intruders trying to get on.

    Ohh one more annoying little tidbit... everytime i let my comp sit or whatever it may be it always loses connectivity with the other comp. It's like they always manage to change IP address's by themselves, which is another reason why i wanted to set them to a manual address. :confused:
