Default network adapters

Sorry, Rick's firewall is not on. Sparky's firewall is not giving me an
option to turn it on, grayed out. The firewall far the internet connection
is on far sparky.

I ran the wizard, still can't share files. The one thing I see different

is
the node type on rick say's broadcast. Is that okay? When I go to network

to
see if they will share Sparky shows it self, Rick doesn't show anything.
Thanks Chuck, keep plugging away you will figure it out. I do have another
card. It's an old linksys lan card II. I don't think xp has drivers far it
but not sure.

No they don't share files. No Rick doen't connect to internet. Yes

sparky
does using usb port. When I had other protocol in they did share files.

I
took everthing out butt what you said to leave, not thoching anything

unless
you say to.


OK, the light is beginning to come on.

So when you had IPX (on both computers?) you had file sharing. Which

means that
the network cards must work, and must be properly connected. That's 50%

of the
battle right there.

So you have to connect Rick thru Sparky cause you're using a USB modem

on
Sparky. Yuck. But it should work with ICS.

Are you running ICS on Sparky ("This computer connects directly to the

internet"
and "This computer provides internet service to other computers")? If

you
were,
the D-Link should have an ip address 192.168.0.1. With ICS on Sparky,

and
with
both network cards working and properly connected, Rick should get a

suitable ip
address assigned.

So get ICS working on Sparky (run the wizard giving the settings above),

and
rerun IPConfig on both.

Do you have firewalls on either computer? Now or in the past?
