Hey guys, I am having some issues with Internet Connection Sharing in XP. I want to use the wireless on my PC to broadcast the internet that is plugged into my ethernet. The problem is the server that I connect to has the IP 192.168.0.1 and when I enable ICS it tries to default my IP on the ethernet to 192.168.0.1. Obviously there would be an IP conflict and therefore I would not connect to the internet to share the connection to my wireless. Anyone know of a solution?
One option is to change the IP on the server but that means changing all the IP's on the other computers and all the e-mail routing etc, basically a whole lot of hassle.

Why don't you just get a wireless router and forget ICS? It's a PIA.
I agree with Grumpy it's pretty cheap and you can just get a router for like $30 and forget the whole hassle and gray hair that go along with ICS
