Okay I've just setup a new ICS / LAN, the computers are literally right next to each other. I'm using a program called PPPshare Accelerator to share the connection, both computers are running Windows 98 SE.
The client computer seems to connect fine, and can browse the web, use MSN, download etc, but every now and then (usually 10-20 minute intervals) a window comes up on the client saying "Wsock Authentication" and has a space for a username and a password. I click OK without entering a password, and it asks again. And again, some times up to 10 times before continuing. During this stage connection is dropped from the client computer, and is EXTREMELY annoying.
Please help if you know anything about how to disable the authentication.
A new problem has arisen, it takes an extremely long time to send messages through MSN from one to another, and most file transfers do not work.
Any information you need I am of course willing to provide, I'll check back here often.
