I have a desktop and a laptop. I had the desktop successfully running ICS
with Ethernet and WiFi bridged, and all worked fine.

Then I tried an external Linksys ADSL gateway, which didn't provide the
range of the desktop's internal PCI WiFi card, so I rejected the Linksys and
re-esablished ICS on the desktop.

Now, while the actual wireless connection is reported 'Excellent', and the
ICS computer successfully sets the laptop's address by DHCP, I can no longer
ping between the computers. In desperation, I tried setting the bridged
wireless card forced compatibility mode, which didn't help,

Any other ideas??

I cant get my computer to set the laptop address by DHCP. the wireless card receives but won't recognize my comcast through the Netgear access point anymore (it used to) I can use my wireless card everywhere but at my own house.! it won't "flush the ARP cache " and noone seems to know what that means. ISP COMcast has one tech support- "turn offyour modem for 30 secs and try again" that is all they have to say. Netgear was about as helpful.
