View Full Version : W2000 Internet Connection Sharing

I have W2000 computer set up to share it's Internet Connection with a Windows Me computer. It works OK except that when the ME machine starts up it tries to dial out to it's homepage. I have disabled nearly every background program but it still does it. Any ideas?

i can't comment on w2k ics but going from 98se ics i've found the auto dail up to be a major pain in the....

give adaware5.6 a run through, you may have some spyware looking for a connection.
can you list what u have at startup??

i haven't tried it but u could try setting the default protocol to netbeui or ipx/sx provided the netbeui over tcp/ip is off.

failing that go buy a decent ics software such as wingate or sygate.
