Hi Pam,
That's the button that will do it without the wizard.
The last email I sent about Nat seems to be the way to go for now.

| I don't recall running an ICS wizard when I set up the network the first
| time, and no, I know I didn't rerun it after changing nics.  Do you happen
| to know where to find this wizard?
| The only thing I've ever done in the past is simply check a box that says
| "Enable ICS......." which is located in the dial up properties.
| 
| 
|   Did you rerun the ICS wizard after changing the NIC out?
| 
| 
|     The machines are connected via a switch.  And currently they (the server
| and the XP client) are communicating via static IP's.  ICS will not work
| though with static IP's, hence the need to use DHCP, which allows connection
| sharing.

| 
|       A couple of questions.  First, are you connected via a hub sharing a
| dialup connection through the Win2K box?  And second, why do you feel it
| necessary to use DHCP?  Why not just use static IPs?
| 
|

|         What you describe is pretty much what I understand too, and is what
| I tried
|         to accomplish.  But it isn't doing what it's suppose to do.  Was
| hoping for
|         someone to be able to go over the settings with me and find what I'm
|         obviously not doing right.
|         Since the loss of ICS with the XP machine occurred when I changed
| nic's in
|         the server machine I can only assume the problem is in my new setup
| on the
|         new nic.
| 
|         As for the 98 box..... that's going to be a different kind of
| problem.
|         I think I need to make sure teh 2k box CAN network properly with the
| XP box
|         before I tackle a box that has other problems too.
| 
|         But for tonight I gotta call it a night.  Not back up to full speed
| yet.
| 
|         Thanks everyone for your input so far.
|
