There are around 10 computers running on Windows 2000
Professional SP 4, and 1 computer on Windows XP SP2 .

System running on Windows XP SP2 has the ADSL Internet
Connection

Out of 10 Computers Only 1 Computer requires the Internet
Connection, which can access through the WinXP System
(ICS)

I have configured the ICS Sharing from WinXP end and am
unable to configure on Win2000 Prof system.

Can anyone please get me the solution for the same.

Thanks

Forget entirely the idea of using ICS !

Get a Cable/DSL Router such as the Linksys BEFSR41 (4 port) or a Linksys BEFSR81 (8 port)
and it will make the DSL connection and if you are using PPPoE then you won't need any PPPoE
or ISP provided software on the WinXP platform. The Router will allow up to 253 computers
to share the one ISP provided WAN address. It will also free up resources on the WinXP and
the WinXP PC won't have to work as hard because it is not provided Routing services to the
other computers. In addition, the other computers are don't need to have the WinXP PC up
and running, just the Cable/DSL Router.

There are other benefits as well such as a DHCP server to automatically assigned LAN IP
addresses to all the computers. In addition the Router employs Network Address Translation
which will provide a Simplistic level of FireWall protection on the LAN. To maximize the
protection of your LAN you can specifically block both TCP and UDP ports 135 ~ 139 and 445
on the Router, which is highly suggested.

Using a Cable/DSL Router as I have suggested will enhance your security, ease the use of
shared Internet and will mitigate your present problems.

Did you create a floppy on the Host XP machine to configure the 2000 machine?
You don't need the floppy for XP machines but it may be necessary for 2000,
ME and 98 machines.

I second that advice, and I myself use BEFSR41 (4 port) to share the
internet. For my other USB DSL connection (having as a backup), I use
AnalogX Proxy rather than using ICS.

I third the "advice", as I outgrew my BEFSR41, got another WRT54GS, outgrew
it, and decided to connect the 41 to the 54 and use both. I never thought
I'd see the day, home users would be using more the one PC, much less, more
than one router, but with wireless, economically priced PC's and network
devices, it seems quite common now a days.

ICS?? Unless you have a very strange situation, I don't know why anyone
would use that!
I have 7 desktop PCs and 2 laptops on my home network.
Due to the size/construction of my house, my wireless won't always get a
good connection everywhere. My Cable Modem/Linksys wireless router is in my
upstairs office. I uplink from the wireless router to an 8 port switch.
I hard wired several lines to various locations on my ground floor for my
desktop systems, but use 1 line (and 1 port on the router) to connect a
second LInksys wireless router down there.
I use a different (non broadcast) SSID and channel on each floor and have
good results.
