My suggestion, if you are trying to use dial up to share Internet in a house, find an old p1 or p2 class pc, install a 56k modem, network card and 1gb or larger hdd, install smoothwall on it, put your isp info in and your done linux and windows both love them, it is stable (when i was using one i got nearly 2 years up time) and they have a great litle web interface to work on it from

6. I can see and open Windows network from Linux System.
7. I can ping successfully both machines from the other. Both IP addresses have changed.

Yet I still cant get an internet connection or ping external websites. Time to get the cheque book out. I wonder if I have mucked up a proxy setting or something. I don't know, I'm just out of ideas.
