I am brand new to networking and am trying to share Internet access between my desktop and laptop. My LAN network is running fine, meaning I can play multiplayer games, deal with files, etc. However, I cannot get it to share Internet access.
On my desktop I have the following settings: IP address is= 192.168.0.1 Laptop's IP= 192.168.0.2
For some reason I was able to share Internet access previously but it will not work now. It worked before I designated IP addresses for each computer, which I did to run a multiplayer game. Is there a way to share Internet access and be able to run a TCP/IP multiplayer game on the same network? Not at the same time of course.
