    I have a dual LAN on my mother board. I've enabled the ICS in the sharing tab in the IPv4 Properties.
    1=Host
    2=Guest
    No.1 is my main computer and has 2 LAN cards on the motherboard.
    No.2 is the Media Center.
    I have a LAN cable to connect them. It used to work when No.2 had WIN XP.

    Now I can see them in the network area but No.2 can't access computer 1 and can't use internet from no.1

    How to fix this?
