If you'd rather set your TCP/IP properties manually,
do the following:
These settings assume that the IP address of the LAN NIC
in the ICS server is 192.168.0.1. A Win2000
ICS server always uses that address, but you can specify a different
one on a Win98SE or WinMe ICS server. If the IP address
of the ICS Server's LAN NIC is not 192.168.0.1, then
either change it to 192.168.0.1 or substitute the
IP address that it is set to, wherever you see 192.168.0.1 in
the steps below.
You can have a mix of automatically and manually assigned
client machines on your network. Because ICS' DHCP server
assigns addresses sequentially starting at 192.168.0.2
and works up, assign your manual addresses starting at
192.168.0.254 and work down.
Set the client's IP address to a unique (not the
same as any other machine's address) address from 192.168.0.2
Click the WINS Configuration tab and configure
it to Disable WINS Resolution.
Click the Gateway tab and set the default gateway
Click the DNS Configuration tab and
make these settings:
After configuring TCP/IP, reboot
your computer. When it comes back up, it should
be ready to access the shared Internet connection.
That's all there is to it! Enjoy your shared connection!
