trying to share an aDSL conn, using Nat32, and when i goto configure it, it gives me the error "Failed WINDOWS DHCP configuration", never got this before.. (only happens when selecting the NIC card)..

and all the other computers that want to have access to the net obviously won't work, any idea's on why this happens?
any help would be greatly appreciated..

Set your internal NIC to static, it's probably trying to pull an IP from a non-existant DHCP server. The "server' wont be able to get web pages if the external NIC aint working, so as long as it can surf it's fine externally.

Use settings like these:

IP: 192.168.0.1
Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.0.1

The "clients" all get the same settings, but increment the IP address. Set thier DNS server to be 192.168.0.1.

It should all be in the docs.. and I bet the settings are different but this might help.
