Ad-hoc network (PPC to PC), ICS and wireless?

Ad-hoc network (PPC to PC), ICS and wireless?

Post by Mike » Thu, 09 Sep 2004 16:18:15


Please, please can anyone help!

I want to set up an ad-hoc wireless network between my
home PC and my pocket PC.
I've been trying for 2 weeks now and have had no success.

I have the following:
PC running Windows XP Home Edition
512k BT Broadband Internet Connection
Blitzz Netwave 802.11b Wireless LAN Adapter

Ipaq H1930 running Pocket PC 2002
SanDisk SD 802.11b Wi-Fi Card

I already had ActiveSync 3.7.1 installed and I
successfully use it to sync my PPC with my PC.

My main problem is that when I install the USB Wireless
Adapter, I lose my Broadband
Internet connection. Well, I can still connect but I
can't load any web pages.

I have installed the software and inserted the USB
adapter according to the manufacturers
instructions. I then re-boot and the problems start.

I want to use ICS so that I can browse the Internet on
the PPC.

Can anyone offer any help?
Thanks,
Mike.

So you have two network connections, the 512k BT Broadband Internet
Connection and the Blitzz Netwave 802.11b Wireless LAN Adapter? Is that
correct? When you add ICS do you then loose the 512k BT Broadband Internet
Connection? If so are you adding ICS to the 512k BT Broadband Internet
Connection? This is the connection you should add ICS to. Not the Blitzz
Netwave 802.11b Wireless LAN Adapter.
