    I have a question. We just got ADSL installed and it's working fine. However on our network, I can't seem to download email messages through Outlook Express and some sites don't seem to load on client PCs, although on the server they load fine. I'm using Windows XP ICS, does anyone have any suggestions for other programs I could use to share the Internet and cure these problems?

    I've already tried WinRoute Lite.

    i would suggest a hardware router. i am currently looking into one for my adsl. i think i am going to get the netgear 8 port switch cable/dsl router with firewall (also supports port mapping). its expensive, but cheaper than a computer.

    But the only software ICS i have used is the one with 98SE. i havent got the XP one to work properly either. :(

    Hmmm ok, might have to look into that.

    Do you have any suggestions for other programs I could give a try?

    umm... one thing i had to do with my email account when i had the net shared was:
    in outlook express, instead of putting "mail" as the server, i had to put "mail.optushome.com.au" as the server, you might need to do that, i'm not sure though :\

    If I may just say so, XP is usually the problem, windows XP is got to be the most buggy program ever, I think XP stands for
    Xtreme Problems. If you have a problem with loading or timeouts chances are it's XP:cheers:

    I agree, if anything it would be the ICS that comes with XP, but not the OS.

    Oh, but he's using an Athlon CPU. That's what the problem is.. Athlon CPU's always cause problems. They crash everything...
