i have a bit of a problem, seems simple at first.

i used to have a shared connection, xp to xp, files and cable internet

now i've upgraded my system, server to xp pro sp1, and 2nd to xp home sp1. also internet is through a telephone service, ADSL. telephone line -> modem -> USB. ethernet is used for crossover

no matter how i look at it, the network just doesnt work. ran wizard several times on both computers.
server sees the network and sends packets to it, they are never returned. but that's about the only thing, he cannot ping the client in any way, IP or name. second one doesn even less. cant send packets, cannot receive, cant ping, only sees that a cable is plugged in.
they are both in the same workgroup, but they can only see themselves in network places


server has
ip 192.168.2.2
mask 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.2.1
DNS server 192.168.2.1

network connections are
1394 connection (crossover)
local area connection (the nework)
local area connection 3 (internet whis is shared, no firewall)


2nd has
ip 192.168.2.3
mask 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.2.2
DNS 192.168.2.1

Network Conncetions:
Local Area Network



CP/IP over NETBios is enabled on both
simple file sharing is enabled
All windows firewalls are turned off. I have only another firewall, and it is turned off when im setting up the network.
Also ive reinstalled windows on both computers. Tried to connect them several times with and without the network wizard.

This is frustrating me so much, i just need a shed of light as how to get my network runnig, or at least the internet. Thanks in advance.

try changing the 2nd gateway to 192.168.2.1 like the first one coz it's supposed to be looking for that gateway to connect

If you are using ICS, do not set static IP's, let them be assigned via DHCP. IIRC ICS must use the 192.168.0. network segment for some reason.

I would seriously consider avoiding ICS and investing in a good ADSL modem/router combo - most of them also come with a built in 10/100 switch so crossover cables shouldn't be required either.

Yeah, the Wireless G ADSL Gateway springs to mind!
I couldn't find that when I was out and about looking to purchase one.

So went with the D-Link equivelent ... pretty nice :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
