    Hi All,
    I have a simple home network. I home PC used as Host (XP pro) and my laptop (XP pro). They are connected via a simple 5 port hub. everything works great but the problem is when I connect my laptop to the network for some reason it feels it should dial up using the ICS on the host computer whether I want to or not. I think this is a missed check box type question. Can anyone help or advise. Cheers

    Go to the dialog where you enabled ICS (properties on you Internet connection). There you can uncheck a box that allows users on the network to auto-dial. That should do it.
