Hi folks,

I'm helping a friend set up a 2 pc home network, she bought a linksys router 
and has cable modem
She's on dhcp. One machine is win 2k the other is winME. The 2k machine gets 
it's internal ip just fine, It can get out to the internet fine. 
The second one gets it's ip and can ping the router but can't ping the 2k 
machine now get to the modem. Both machines are set to obtain everything 
automatically. I read the little manual and followed it but must be missing 
something somewhere on the second modem.
One thing I was wondering about. The 2k machine was originally connected to the 
modem and the isp technician installed the software to communicate with the 
modem. Does that same software have to be on the ME machine?
Also if I look at internet connection sharing, it tries to set the ip to and trhe linksys router doesn't like that.

Any ideas, and thanks in advance,
