To enable Internet Connection Sharing on a network connection

You must be logged on to your computer with an owner account in order to complete this procedure.
Open Network Connections. (Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double–click Network Connections.)

Click the dial–up, local area network, PPPoE, or VPN connection you want to share, and then, under Network Tasks, click Change settings of this connection.

On the Advanced tab, select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box.
If you want this connection to dial automatically when another computer on your home or small office network attempts to access external resources, select the Establish a dial–up connection whenever a computer on my network attempts to access the Internet check box.

If you want other network users to enable or disable the shared Internet connection, select the Allow other network users to control or disable the shared Internet connection check box.

Under Internet Connection Sharing, in Home networking connection, select any adapter that connects the computer sharing its Internet connection to the other computers on your network. The Home networking connection is only present when two or more network adapters are installed on the computer.

My computer will not connect to the internet


maybe you should go through the control panel to the internet/network page, then to the network and sharing centre to view and manage your connections. You should identify your network and verify if the connection is alright. If not click on connect and put in your security code to activate a connection. Once activated, you should be able to use the internet facility.

Cannot establish connection with 2Wire and Netgear N900 wireless USB adapter WNDA4100


Why not, what type of message are you getting?

Let's start with Internet Options. If you have Windows XP Click Start/Control Panel/Internet Options. If you have Windows Vista or Windows 7 click Start/Control Panel/Network and Internet/Internet Options.

When the Internet Options window opens on the General Tab make sure you have a valid web address as the Home Page. If not, create a simple Home Page by typing: http://www.google.com You don't have to click OK now because if you do the Internet Options window will close.

Click the Security Tab and under where it says "select a zone to view or change settings" Click on the one that says Internet, then scroll down to near the bottom right and make sure that DEFAULT is grayed out (whereas you cannot click on it). You can Click on Default just to be sure. Next click the Intranet so that it is highlighted and make sure DEFAULT is grayed out so that you cannot click on it. Do the same thing for the other two zones (Trusted Sites and Restricted Sites). After all zones under the Security Tab are set to Default click the next Tab which is the Privacy tab.

On the Privacy Tab you want to make sure that DEFAULT is grayed out, if not click on it. When in doubt just click the Default tab.

Next skip over the Content tab and proceed to click the Connections Tab. On the Connections Tab make sure that the Never Dial A Connection is checked if you have something in the white box above it in for Dialup and Virtual Private Networks settings. Look down on the right near the bottom and Click the LAN SETTINGS button. When Lan Settings open up the only box that should be checked is the very first box that says: Automatically Detect Settings. If any other box is checked remove the check from it or you will never be able to connect. Click OK to close the LAN SETTINGS tab.

Next skip over the Programs tab and click the Advanced tab. When it opens slide the blue bar on the right all the way down until you get to the bottom of the window. You want to be able to make sure that if you see something like (Use SSL 2.0, Use SSL 3.0, Use TSL 1.0) that you put a check in the box to the left of each one of them. Afterwards you can click OK to close the Internet Options Window.


Authentication


That means you probably don't have the password or the Authentication Type set correctly.

For Windows XP below:
Click Start/Control Panel/Network Connections then Right Click on the Wireless Network Connection and select Properties. When the Properties window open click the Wireless Networks tab. Click on the SSID for your wireless network that you connect to and the Properties window will open. You can change the Authentication Type to match the type set in your wireless router and you can also change your password or Network Key to make sure you have it in correctly.

For Windows Vista below:

Click Start/Control Panel/Network and Sharing Center then look to the left of the open window and click Manage Wireless Networks. Find the SSID of the network that you connect to and double click it. When the window opens click the Security tab to change the Security Type (which is the Authentication), The Encryption Type and the Network Security Key (which is the password).

For Windows 7 below:
Click Start/Control Panel/Network and Internet/Network and Sharing Center then look to the left and select Manage Wireless Networks. Find the SSID of the network that you connect to and double click it. When the window opens click the Security tab to change the Security Type (which is the Authentication), The Encryption Type and the Network Security Key (which is the password).

How do i stop vista from saving public wireless connections? i can't get dialog box to change settings. vista sp2 on toshiba laptop.


Open the Network and Sharing Center by clicking on the connection icon in the system tray by the clock. At the bottom of the window it will say Network and Sharing Center. In the Network and Sharing Center, on the left side of the window you will see a selection for 'Manage Wireless Connections' Click on that. A window will open with all the wireless connections that have been made with your laptop. Select the one you want and at the top it will give you the option to delete it. Vista automatically saves all public connections for use at a later date. When a new wireless connection is made Vista will ask you if it is a public or private connection and will give you the option of saving the connection. I hope this helps.

I AM UNABLE TO ACCESS INTERNET THRU MY HYBRID APPLE MAC DESK TOP-


Go into network set up a shared Internet connection using ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) You can use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) to share an Internet connection among two or more computers on a network. First, you need one computer, called the host computer, that is connected to the Internet and that has a separate connection to the other computers on your network. You enable ICS on the Internet connection. The other computers on your network then connect to the host computer, and from there to the Internet through the host computer's shared Internet connection.
If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings might prevent you from completing these steps.
On the host computer (the computer whose Internet connection you plan to share):
  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Network Connections.
  2. Right-click the connection that you want to share, and then click Properties.getcontent.aspx?assetid=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b&documentset=en-us&renderkey=signed1 If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. Click the Sharing tab, and then select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s Internet connection check box.

I have a d link DES-1105. cant get more than one computer to work on hub/switch.


Hi!
Unfortunately, hubs or switches cannot be use to share internet access specially if it's connected to a modem. To share internet access, you will need a router. If you prefer not to use a router, you can enable ICS (Internet Connection sharing) on one PC and share internet access to the others. However, the PC that will share internet access will need two ethernet cards (or LAN cards).

Your setup will look like this:

If internet is not a concern, and you just want to connect the computers to share files and resources, you will have to se your computers to static IP. You do not need any additional device - just connect your computers to the hub, setup a static IP on all the computers.

If you need further assistance setting up static IP on the computers, please reply and I'll give you the step by step instruction for that.

For any setup, a router will be the best option.


I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

WILL CONNECT TO WIRELESS BUT NO INTERNET OPTIONS. ONLY ON LAPTOP WILL WORK AT A TIME


Hi,

On your post "WILL CONNECT TO WIRELESS BUT NO INTERNET OPTIONS" this would be a configuration/settings issue more to do with TCP/IP. Pls post back what modem and your ISP (provider).

On "ONLY ON LAPTOP WILL WORK AT A TIME", do you mean you would want to use the Internet on more than one computer? If yes, then you would need a router to share the internet connection.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
