I recently installed Windows Vista ultimate on my computer, and have had a relatively trouble free, if not impressive experience, with it till recently. A couple of days back, I shared my internet connection with an Xp pro computer using a hub and Vista's ICS, with my vista machine being the main host. While initially it worked well, soon it started giving a weird error.

After some time, my Vista machine randomly starts showing a "Server not found" error. Diagnostics says that the DNS server is not responding. Strangely, the internet still works perfectly on the Xp pro computer, and if i disable sharing, everything goes back to normal. This happens randomly after some use, but always happens, and without any explanation.

I have used ICS on xp pro before, and never encountered a problem. Any ideas why this is happening?
