I unshared and reshared the host internet connection. On the client
IPconfig I get a connection-specific DNS suffix: MShome.net IP and subnet
and gateway is correct. Host wireless connection IP and subnet is also
correct. Where do I see the DNS server? FTP is still working. Http and
Https are still dead. Kind regards.

Configure the client's wireless connection to obtain an IP address and
DNS address automatically. The host will provide them.

To see the client's DNS server address, run "ipconfig" in a command
prompt window (Start > Run > cmd), or right-click the network
connection and click Status > Support > Details.

Open a command prompt window on the client, enter this command, then
reboot and try HTTP/HTTPS again:

netsh winsock reset

If that doesn't fix the problem, run these commands on the client.
Each one should get four replies:

ping 192.168.0.1
ping 72.14.207.99
ping google.com

If those commands succeed, enter these addresses in your web browser.
They should both take you to the Google web page:

http://72.14.207.99
http://google.com

If HTTP/HTTPS still fails, start the computer in "Safe mode with
networking" and try it again. If it works in Safe mode, a program
that runs on startup is causing the problem. Look for a firewall or
other network-related program.

Hi, I did the Winsock reset - no change,
Only "ping 192.168.0.1" works.
In safe mode, no change.
Firewalls are switched off on Host Internet and Wifi and Client Wifi.
I just pray you don't run out of suggestions. Thanks for your effort!
Regards.

You're welcome. I'm sorry to say that we've covered everything I can
think of, assuming that:

1. You've enabled Internet Connection Sharing on the correct network
connection on the host computer.

2. The TCP/IP properties are correct on the host's wireless
connection:

IP Address: 192.168.0.1
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0

3. The TCP/IP properties are correct on the client's wireless
connecction:

IP Address: 192.168.0.x (1<x<255)
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1
DNS Server = 192.168.0.1

4. You configured the correct MTU value on the client.

Does your broadband modem have an Ethernet output? If so, I strongly
recommend connecting the modem to a wireless router, instead of using
ICS, to share the Internet connection.

Thanks Steve,
but what about a proxy? Can't that maybe do it?
If you follow this link, you can see my modem - plain USB mobile (wireless)
only. http://www.sierrawireless.com/product/ac595U.aspx
What now? Please anybody help!!

I hadn't thought about using a proxy server. Here's one that might do
the job:

Hi, why am I developing a strange suspicion that due to the way USB port
traffic works, it cannot be shared?
I'm played around with Network Bridges but still no change.
Can you tell me what a 1394 Net Adapter is?
Kind regards.

If your USB modem creates a connection in the Network Connections
folder, it should be possible to share it. What are all of the
connections that appear in your Network Connections folder?

The Network Bridge can't do Internet Connection Sharing. If you've
created a Network Bridge, delete it. I've written an article about
what it does:

XP ICS - Network Bridge
http://www.practicallynetworked.com/...workbridge.htm

Your computer has an IEEE 1394 (FireWire) port, which can be used to
connect a digital camera, external disk drive, etc.

It's also possible to network computers to each other through their
IEEE 1394 ports. Since you're not doing that, ignore the IEEE 1394
Net Adapter.

Thanks for that information. Enable Internet Connection Sharing on
the host's "Telecom 3G" connection. If there's a box where you can
choose the home networking connection, choose the "Intel Wireless"
connection.

If that's what you've already done, I don't know why Internet access
on the client doesn't work right.
