I have one desk top with this set up working fine, using Win XP, but can not set it up on another desk top, using Win XP, or my two lap tops, using Win 7. The reason it says, is this: "TO CREATE A NETWORK BRIDGE, YOU MUST SELECT AT LEAST TWO LAN, OR HIGH SPEED INTERNET CONNECTIONS, THAT ARE NOT BEING USED BY INTERNET CONNECTION SHARING.". I have tried searching for solutions, but to no avail. I just can't figure out how to do, what it is asking.....arrrrgh! Can anyone help. Have dial-up, so video help is not an option :(

Dial up as in using a analog line?  At 56k with the more common 28k it is not meant to be a shared internet connection.  Doesn't have enough bandwidth.

 

Now if you mean Dial Up as in a PPPoE connection [DSL] then usually you put in a router that can support the PPPoE connection and the user authentication it requires [user name and password].

 

Perhaps you can provide a better description of your equipment and setup?

Maybe not meant to be, but can be Wand, as i have one desk top using it. My equipment/setup wouldn't make any difference, as bridging can be used for many reasons, and bridge connection steps, should be the same for any one of those reasons. Just need the steps :)

Sorry but the lack of info you are providing doesn't allow me to advise you.  If you say you already have one pc that is using "it" [bridge] then you have already bridged the dial up to the lan.

 

Now if you were able to describe what you did that resulted in the above error and what it is you are trying to accomplish [bridge is not an explanation] then perhaps we can help.

 

Posting the results of a ipconfig /all when connected to the dial up would also be helpful.

Answer: "desk top with this set up working fine, using Win XP, but can not set it up on another desk top, using Win XP, or my two lap tops, using Win 7."

903ASP it doesn't appear we are going to get the communication we need so I am going to take a stab in the dark as to what you are doing.

 

If you are bridging your dialup connection to a wired nic in the machine that has the dial up this can result in two problems

1. you have no dhcp server to give to the pc attached to the wired nic you are trying to share internet on

2. you can only share to one machine when you have multiple machines.

 

Instead you need to engage ICS [internet connection sharing - google it for the how to].  Additionally you need to get a switch connected to your internet sharing pc wired nic.  You would then connect the rest of the stations to the switch so they can get internet.  ICS provides a dhcp server so they will all get ip addresses.
