    I have a Netgear WAG311 in my Win2K desktop. I also have a
    Speedstream 5100 (wired) DSL modem attached and giving me Yahoo DSL.
    I would like to set-up an ad-hoc with my laptop (Dell w/ XP) to both
    transfer files between the two machines as well access the web from
    the laptop. I've set-up the ad-hoc and I get full green bars on the
    laptop. However, I can't get web access through the laptop, nor can I
    "see" the desktop machine. I have attempted to "share" the LAN
    connection (created by the Speedstream) but windows declares that this
    cannot work - and then the DSL connections is disconnected and needs
    to be reinstalled through a minimal software re-install. IPCONFIG
    gives the following...

    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>ipconfig

    Windows 2000 IP Configuration
    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection 2:
    Media State . . . . . . . . . . . : Cable Disconnected
    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
    Connection-specific DNS Suffix . : domain_not_set.invalid
    IP Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 67.113.31.88
    Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
    Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 67.113.31.80
    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>

    Help is greatly appreciated.
