OK so I've got ICS sharing internet between 2 PCs working fine. What about 3 PCs, do I need a router for this?

Here's my current setup:

- ICS Host PC with internal ADSL modem: I told this guy to buy an external adsl modem/router but he wouldn't listen
- ICS Host and client PCs connecting with bluetooth usb dongles, WIDCOMM stack and both running win XP (SP1)
- A laptop with a usb dongle

Does ICS actually support more than 1 client PCs? Another option is to connect the laptop to the ICS Client PC via a crossover cable... but even that I'm not sure if its possible...

It's the LAN Access over PPP - if you are using ICS and your Bluetooth is configured like this image, then you're using it:



The other service is PAN, and requires some more configuration than PPP.

If your connection is working, don't break it!

Oh... The iBook might be tricky, but remember - this is a serial connection to a PPP server (the Bluetooth on your server). It might work straight away, if not you might find how to do it if you search for this kind of connections on Google.
