I have two computers both operating Win2000 (desktop and laptop) networked with Internet Sharing enabled on the desktop. We find that every time the laptop is closed down (or the user logs off) it looses the TCP/IP settings for the desktop (192.168.0.1) and reverts to an older setting.
We have deleted and re-installed TCP/IP repeatedly but still each time the laptop is started it shows the old settings. Changing the settings to the current TCP address allows Internet Sharing to operate for that session only.
Can someone please tell me how to get the laptop to retain the new address of the desktop so Internet Sharing works without all the resetting of addresses?
