And appologies if this question has been asked a 1000 times before.
Running Win2kPro SP4 I can share my broadband connection no problem when using CAT5 cable, a Compaq Netelligent 10/100TX PCI UTP Controller in my desktop PC, and a Longshine Ethernet 10M in my laptop. The connection is stable and DHCP works fine as does ICS.
As soon as I try to do the same using a Belkin Wireless PCI Network Card in my desktop PC & Belkin Wireless G Notebook Netork Card in my laptop, the whole thing goes tits up.
The laptop won't access the ICS DHCP server. Therefore no DNS or default gateways are allocated either. If I use a static ip address of192.168.0.254, subnet 255.255.255.0 with default gateway as 192.168.0.1 and the same for DNS. The network side runs ok, but still no internet.
Pinging a hostname dosen't work so DNS is not working. Neither does entering a tcp/ip address into IE6.
What the hell is going on. Is there a restriction in wireless networking that means peer to peer ICS just won't work with out a router.
If this is so will an ordinary wireless router do the job with my Speed Touch ADSL USB modem, or would i have to replace it with a modem-router.
Thanks in advance and best regards.
