I'd add one thing: Be sure you NEED to "share" your computer to the Internet before doing it and make sure you have the right firewall protection (Windows Firewall is not my #1 choice). You don't want *just anyone* getting into your machine from who knows where on the Internet.

Run the Network Setup Wizard.
Start->My Computer
Click on My Network Places
Click on Setup a home or small office network
That will start the Network Setup Wizard
Click Next and follow the steps.  You will be able to share your internet connection with others.  e.g. use your WLAN with others on a LAN or use your LAN connection with others on a WLAN.
The ICS Internet Connection Sharing turns your computer into a server which will hand out IP addresses to the computers connecting to it.

I cannot find the window where all the wireless connections are available like netgear and verizon how can i log on to the internet


you didn't say which version of Windows you have. For Win 7, you can go into the control panel and the network and sharing center. In Win XP you can click on my computer and then there should be a choice on the left side of the screen for network connections.

I have configured my d link router and able to connect it with my win xp laptop and after i connect internet cable to the wireless router i am unable to access the internet through my win xp and win 7...


If initially the Win XP laptop was connected to internet at the cable/dsl modem, its MAC address would have been registered on service setup. If the router is now in place between the Win XP laptop and the cable/dsl modem, you would need to go on the Win XP laptop and log into the router as admin to clone the Win XP laptop's MAC address to the dlink router's WAN interface (internet facing side) so that the cable/dsl modem will see the previously registered MAC address and will enable the internet access.

How do i share this printer from win xp to win vista? i have 2 computers side by side and want the printer to serve both computers?


Easiest way is to install it on one computer, then make sure it is shared with all.
On the other computer, do a search for printers on the first computer, and install it on the second one.
It should be literally that simple, so long as there is at least a peer network, at the least, as a common link between both computers.

I want to share an HP 7760 on an XP with Win 7


To get ahead of myself and answer your question first, your Win 7 machine may automatically load a driver for your shared printer.

Please have a look at the procedure below: (these instructions assume that your XP machine is sharing the HP printer and that your Win 7 laptop can "see" your network and the shared printer connected to your XP desktop computer)

On the Win7 machine, follow these steps:

1) In "Control Panel" click "Add local printer"
2) Create New Port > Local port
3) Port Name is "\\xpcomputername\printername" - without the quotes

(insert the XP's real network name and your printer's real name in the above location)

4) Click <OK>

5) Windows 7 should automatically load a driver allowing you to print on the HP connected to the XP from the Win7 laptop.

I hope this helps!

I HAVE HP LASERJET 1018 PRINTER. I INSTALLED & SHARED PRINTER ON WIN XP BASED PC. NOW I WANT TO SHARE THIS PRINTER ON ANOTHER PC HAVING WIN SERVER 2003 OS. WHEN I AM INSTALLING THE SERVER ASKED FOR...


The drivers should be the same. When you share the printer, just make your Windows Server 2003 go to the computer with the printer shared by typing the IP address of the computer in the Run Box (Start > Run), for example \\192.168.1.100\. If your XP machine is set correctly, you should see the Printer and Faxes icon, or the printer icon. Double click on that and your printer will be installed with the drivers that XP uses (which are the same, just double checked) so you don't need to do any installing.

Win xp sharing connecion


For Windows XP Professional, the maximum number of other computers that are permitted to simultaneously connect over the network is ten. This limit includes all transports and resource sharing protocols combined. For Windows XP Home Edition, the maximum number of other computers that are permitted to simultaneously connect over the network is five. This limit is the number of simultaneous sessions from other computers the system is permitted to host. This limit does not apply to the use of administrative tools that attach from a remote computer.

Too many connections win xp


In Windows XP Professional the maximum is 10, but you can set this to a lower value. You can use the Shared Folders snap-in to determine the maximum number of users that are permitted to access a folder. In the Shared Folders details pane, click the shared folder for which you want to determine the maximum number of concurrent users who can access the folder. On the Action menu, click Properties, displaying the Properties dialog box for the shared folder. The General tab shows you the user limit. Remember Win SP the maximus is 10. You can also use the Shared Folders snap-in to determine if the max numberof users that are permitted to access a folder has be reached.

Determine the number of connections to the share and the max connections allowed. If the max number of connections has already been made, the user cannot connect to the shared resource.
