- I have a network connected with "switch". Network/File Sharing works
- Main computer has a "wireless" adapter can connect to internet
- OS is Win XP

I am trying to "share" this internet connection to network but when I do

- Network Connections > Wireless Network Connection > Properties > Advanced > Allow other network users to connect through...

It says "...A Lan connection is already configured with the IP adress.." and
can't share the connection

No other device or computer has this ip:

Switch ip range is: 169.X.X.50 and above
Wireless ip range is: and above
Main Computer wireless has the ip of :
Main Computer Lan(Switch) ip is 169.X.X.59

Note: Local Area Connection Requires Manual Ip to be entered in order to work to TCP/IP settings - Obtain Ip Automaticaly won't work

What is wrong?

Thanks a lot...

what you want to do is go into the network connections and bridge the connections, then you will want to select the ip address for the lan that you want to create. after you have done that, change the ip, subnet, default gateway, and possibly the dns all to the ip of of the card directly connected to the lan. i did this and managed to get my xbox to get on live.
