Internet access problem in the home network
I am in UK and I use to use NTL broadband now I have moved to AOL Broadband.
I have win2kserver with 2 other winXP clients.
I have 2 NIC, where I use to get NTL broadband in 1 NIC and give internet to other 2 computer from another NIC using hub.
I have setup win2kserver as a DHCP server and enabled Routing and Remote access.
But now AOL broadband comes from USB
1 NIC, that use to get NTL Broadband is empty, I do not have access to NTL Broadband any longer
I can receive Internet in the server from AOL Broadband but not in clients
1. I can ping from both client to server and server to client
2. I have changed the DNS address of the interface to AOL DNS address, which was previously giving internet to client.
3. I have also enabled DNS in the server
But I cannot get internet on clients why ?

You may have to reconfigure the ICS or uninstall/reinstall it if
it doesn't see the usb device as the outgoing interface.
You may also want to talk to AOL, because they some times do things
I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

I am not using ICS, Remote and routing access is giving internet to client by NAT,

Are you routing and NAT'ting on the right interface? Sounds like it's still setup to route/nat on you your "old" ethernet interface.
NB Make it easy on yourself and configure ICS..
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

I didn't bother on ICS because once I enabled the RRAccess with NAT using NTL DNS server address in 2nd NIC which was giving internet to clients work with no mistakes, stable, reliable and no problem for a year and a half. When I did ICS, it was causing some problem time eo time.
Should I try ICS ince ? may be thank you sir.
