    As title. I have two computers which is connected with cross over cable. Before I activate ICS to share internet connection, I managed to make two computers in a homegroup where they can share files and printer etc. After that, I bridged my 2 LAN cards, and activate the ICS. In my bridges LAN, it auto changed to which I think is normal for ICS. Then my another PC set an IP of with it's gateway and DNS, and I suceeded to share internet connection. But by this way, I am unable to linked both PC under a homegroup, thus can't share anything besides internet.

    So, my question is, is it possible to do both file/prrinter and internet share among two PCs at the same time ? What's the setting have to be done ? Both using W7 x64.

    Sorry if my question a bit dumb but I am not so good in networking stuff. [​IMG]
