ICS with 1 way cable
AnJ1229 Oct-06-00 04:20 AM
hey all.. im have a problem with ics with one way cable. i previously had my two computers ICS on a dial up connection and it worked fine.. but then i went and got 1 way cable... and ofcourse the cable modem is attached to the host computer.. when i hooked the ics for the host computer i had no problems adding the ics feature to it and connecting to the net. (prior i uninstalled ics from both so that i could set ics for high speed access) but when i got to the other computer i go to add/remove software and go to internet tools and try to check ICS i keep getting the message -
"Your network configuration is incomplete. Please install your network hardware before installing ICS"

I have tried everything to try to figure out why this message keeps displaying.. have checked the ethernet card, i have checked in the network connectiongs... The ethernet card is installed and both computers are networked.. but i can use the ICS.. im trying to figure out what im missing here.. im sure tis something simple but i have just been so busy lately.. if anyone can help me please.. feel free. hehe.. me is stomped!!

the ethernert card that is on the NON-host computer that im having problems with ICS is the same ethernet card that i used for the dial up ICS... so.. where have i gone wrong..

thanx

You must have two network adapters in the ICS host, one for the external cable MODEM (an internal, one-way cable MODEM with a dial-up MODEM will not work with ICS) and one to connect to the local network. ICS is not installed on the client. See http://duxcw.com/digest/Howto/network/win98se_cab/intro.htm for instructions on how I did it with my one-way, external cable MODEM. Larry

Okay.. the host compter does have two network adaptors onre for the network ad one for the 1 way cable modem.. does netbui need to be disableed from the HOst computer also.. or only the clients? still having a problem with gettingit to work.. i read through the articles you have.. and hopefully after i get this question answered i can figure it out

NetBEUI can run on all of the computers in addition to TCP/IP. It may cause some performance overhead, but I have not noticed any on many networks, including my own. Larry
