i thought i had it all figured out...could share files, printer but no internet(win XP being gateway,win ME being client)on dail up connection.

read some stuff here and at practically networked to try and get ICS working, well now everthing is messed up. cant share anything, ive tried to remove the connections in my networked places so that i could atart all over, but they wont go anywhere.

as you can...i really have no idea what i am doing!

now for the kicker...i did the same thing about 3 weeks ago and everything worked straight out of the box(LAN in the box that is(LINKSYS 10/100 Network in a Box)).

as for why i didnt keep it setup the first time, well i dont know myself(DUH).

the lan in a box came with a sybergen networks cd...but the read me said it would not work with winME so that is out.

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I had nothing but problems using XP Pro and ME on the client untill I picked up a router... not a single problem since.
