    So, i have a usb network device, installed it, got the driver working, got zydas working (the software), and then i set the usb dongle as an access point. I press on my current connection, and do "allow other people to access the internet through this computers connection" , but whenever i try to connect to the internet that the dongle is sending out with my psp or ps3 or anything, it times out getting IP Address. So i dont know what to do....It used to work in XP fine, but now for some reason i cant get it to share the internet...can anyone help me?

    So let me get this right you have a single usb dongle internet device being shared (ICS on the dongle enabled) to console via a ethernet or wifi connection to/from the PC acting as gateway? Also check the IP address for the PC to Console has changed to something like 192.168.1.1 and the console would be 192.168.1.2

    Well, my PC is connected to a network, and i want to use the "wifimax' (the usb dongle) as a "router". I have it configured correctly to my knowledge, and yes i have ICS enabled...whenever i try to connect to the network though, the one that the wifi max is sending out, it says "ip address timed out". So i guess that means that im not sharing the network that my comp is on correctly with the usb dongle? It worked in XP fine, but in XP i bridged the shared network with the one the dongle was sending out, but in 7, i cant bridge a shared network apparently...

    Well, i have windows firewall disabled, as i am using Kaspersky internet security. It does have a firewall, but even when i disabled the kaspersky firewall, it still would not work. Unless, even though i disabled the windows firewall, it is still working somehow.
