Networking between Windows Vista and XP

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Networking' started by Pierre Pretorius, Nov 8, 2007.

  1. I have 2x computers as follows: (1) Windows Vista with internet connection
    sharing.
    (2) Windows XP. I need to conect (2) to (1) via their seperate Wireless
    Network Conection's without a wireless rooter in between. This all went wel
    until i had to try to conect (2) to the internet via (1)'s internet
    connection sharing. I even disabled (1) and (2)'s firewall settings but
    nothing works! Can someone HELP!!!!

    Using ICS, with an adhoc WiFi connection between the ICS server and client, is
    tricky. ICS is bad enough; ICS with WiFi is worse, and ICS with adhoc WiFi is a
    pain.

    Look at logs from "ipconfig /all" for both computers, and compare.

    And define "nothing works". What can you not do, or what do you see that you
    don't like?
