    OK ya a little vague on the finer details of ya network setup here. Is ya cable modem USB or a nic connection? Does the PC that connects to the internet have ICS installed? Also if ya doin' a direct nic to nic LAN connection between the two PC's are ya usin' a straight network cable or a crossover cable? Are both PC's under the same Workgroup name? It may help also to read this thread before ya get back to us though all but the last number of the IP addresses should be the same.
