I'm sure the answer is here, but there are thousands of ICS messages
to sort through. Summary: I have two PCs connected by ethernet, and
one PC, main, connected to the internet by USB cable modem. Everything
works fine, except the second PC can't access the internet! Any help
finding a quick answer?

Win XP/SP2 on both PCs, via the wizard, internet sharing is enabled on
PC1, and the laptop.

The laptop that is connected to my desktop via NICs using a crossover
cable. This works fine, I can read and write files between PCs from
either direction. For purposes of networking between PCs, I'm a happy
camper! Any help finding a quick answer why PC2 can't access the
internet? Buying more hardware is not an option. First is the
laptop's ipconfig, then the desktop's. TIA!

You can only have ICS enabled on one computer, the one that connects to the internet.

Thank you for the quick reply! I made mistake in my previous post.
ICS is on only the main PC.

I did make a little progress. If I enter the actual IP numbers for a
site on my client/laptop PC, not the www.whateversite.com name, it
works great! That is, it looks like the DNS is not resolving
www.whateversite.com into it's 999.999.999.999 IP numeric address. Is
there a setting I should alter so that my client PC uses the correct
DNS?
---later---
Hey!!! SUCCESS!!! I manually entered the DNS numbers in my client from
the host I found by ipconfig/all, it works great! Thanks for all the
help, it kept me on the correct path!! :) )
