I have a telecom mobile broadband stick and am wanting to use an ad hoc wireless connection to allow another laptop to connect to the internet using my laptop and connection.

I have managed to get the ad hoc wireless network set up, but cannot get the internet on the other laptop.

I have tried to set up ICS but it doesn't seem to be working. Googled it, and someone mentioned there is an ICS wizard? I can't seem to find the wizard either.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

quick crude fix with out the wirless. assuming you have windows xp or vista.

connect the two laptops via ethernet cable. on the laptop that has the telcom card. bridge the telecom card and the ethernet card. should do the trick. may need to set up some static ips etc for the ethernet cards.

or. I know with the telecom card you can set up the dial out manually with a ppoe connection not sure of the settings on that though you may have to talk to telecom. you could do that then set that pppoe connection to be shared between other computers on the network. Run the connection wizard on the computer that has the telecom card, and state that other computer connect through this computer. on the computer that does not have the telecom card connect via adhoc and bingo you should see the connection. and as long as the pppoe has diald out already you should get the net.

note you may have to run the connection wizard on the computer that does not have the telecom card. and state that it connects through another computer on your network. you may have to reboot both computer b4 it shows up

this should give you a pointer on how to do it.

Note when the box pops up to dial out. do not check the box that says allow all users to use this or what ever it says because the other computer will not connect if you check that box.

mmm if you have done anything like this b4 you will know what im talking about if you havent i did not give a very good guide but hope it helps




Hu? did i do that?
