I downloaded the latest version 6.0.11 KWF, read the installation instruction, followed direction to the letter and installed. Previous to installation, I made sure LAN NIC was set properly, ICS was off on the "internet" card, all firewalls and antivirus were uninstalled...etc.

Upon installation, I noticed that my internet was dead. Even after setting up KWF, by following the installtion/setup directions, I cannot get internet on either the host or client machines.

I spent 4+ hours, doing every possible combination of setup, I downloaded all the manuals, read them... without any success. I have even searched these forums and "googled" for something to help, to no avail.

What am I doing wrong? Confused

Setup:
- Windows XP Pro with SP2 (on host and clients)
- 1 Gig Ram, 2.4GHz
- no firewall or antivirus installed
- ICS is off

need more information, like type of internet connection?
are you fixed/dynamic ip address?
what does your traffice policy look like?

first thing to check is if you are getting an internet ip address from your isp...

Internal NIC is a normal wired one, while the "internet" NIC is a wireless card that communicates with a router, thus I have it set up to use a static IP address.

WEP encryption and stuff are setup correctly as I am able to connect to the internet successfully when KWF is not installed, and also am able to use ICS. BUT, I do have ICS disabled before installing KWF.

Just so you know, I had KWF installed about 2 years ago, in this same setup, and it worked fine.

Thanks for attempting to help me in advance. Very Happy

do you have any rules in your traffic policy?

like internal network to external network?
and http,dns services?

make sure translation is set to outgoing(external interface)

Thanks for response again sproket90.

Traffic rules were checked and even the default setting was correct. I even created a rule to let "anything to connect to anywhere by any port" type of rule, allowed it... and still, no go.

Very curious results...

I expermineted as follows: I uninstalled KWF, disabled the Internal NIC, then re-installed KWF. With only 1 card there (the "Internet" one), KWF worked just fine, even without having to mess around the rules.

I then re-enabled the internal NIC, restarted PC, bam! internet was dead again.

I checked and rechecked rules, all seems fine there.

For some odd reason, I am wondering if KWF is trying to access the internet via the "Internal" NIC (ie. backwards). Now keep in mind that I was used the rules WIZARD to specify that KWF should use the "Internet" NIC to go online, but that does not seem to be working.

What do you think?

RESOLVED (I think) Smile

Well, I decided to remove windows "wireless zero config" (in services) and decided to use the lnksys utility to setup connection, and that did it! Very odd, but it works, so I am not complaining. I do not like Linksys' utility, but for now, it will have to do.
