Network settings help please
I need help with setting up Internet connection sharing in Windows 7.
In this guest house I have this Windows 7 PC that gets internet from the wireless router using a 500mw USB adpater and 24dbi grid antenna over a long distance from the main house.
I want to share this connection with other devices in the guest house.
I used to do this by connecting a wireless router to LAN port on the windows 7 PC and using the Internet connection sharing wizard in XP.
Since i upgraded to windows 7, i cant figure it out.
The Wireless router in the main house's ip adress is 192.168.1.1 and is the gateway to the internet.....
This PC in the guest house gets its IP from that router.
Whats settings do I need for the LAN port on this PC and for the Wireless router im connecting out here?
heres a layout if you cant quite get the picture
I've been asking this question all over the place with no replys
but I figured this out myself.
The solution was Plugging the ethernet cable out of my PC into the routers 1-4 ports instead of the WAN/Internet port like I did when using XP.
Dont know why it's like this but I always thought it should be done like this anyway.
If you are trying to do this same thing, the only steps are.
1.Plug everything in(the proper way)
2.Go into Network and sharing center.
3.Enable ICS on the one with internet access.
4.Everything should work out.
The default gateway on everything below the main PC sharing is The main PCs LAN port STATIC address.
For some reason I thought it was the router in the main house. 192.168.1.1.
looks like i need to pay more attention in my networking classes.
