Sierra Wireless Aircard 595U

by JordanBeckett - 1/24/08 12:04 PM

Hi all, I finally signed up because I couldn't find the answer. Everyone talks about ICS with the Wireless Broadband, but has anyone got it WORKING on their Small Office/Home Office (SOHO) networks?

I have a Linsys WRT54G router, two desktop PCs (The PC hosting the AirCard is XP Pro, and the other PC is XP Home).

Here's the setup from the XP Pro Computer (Aircard connected via USB):

I. Network Connections Showing Following Connections
-Dialup Connection: "Sprint Mobile Broadband"
*On Advanced Tab: All 3 ICS Options Checked
-Internet Gateway: "Internet Connection"
-LAN or High-Speed Internet: "Local Area Connection"
-LAN or High-Speed Internet: "Wireless Network Connection"
*Enabled but disconnected. This one was created by the 595U.

II. Local Area Connection Settings
-Client for Microsoft Networks
-QoS Packet Scheduler
-File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks
-Internet Protocol(TCP/IP)
*IP: 192.168.1.102
*SNM: 255.255.255.0
*Gateway: 192.168.1.1 (Linksys Router's Address)

Here's the setup from the XP Home Computer(Connect via Ethernet):

I. Network Connections Showing Following Connections
-Internet Gateway: "Internet Connection"
-LAN or High-Speed Internet: "Local Area Connection"

II. Local Area Connection Settings
-Client for Microsoft Networks
-QoS Packet Scheduler
-File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks
-Internet Protocol(TCP/IP)
*IP: 192.168.1.103
*SNM: 255.255.255.0
*Gateway: 192.168.1.1 (Linksys Router's Address)


Internet Gateway on both computers display as active, but when I click enable on either, they both say "Connecting... Failed!"

Linksys Router is setup with DHCP active, WiFi off, and I've tried it in both Gateway mode and Router mode. I can't figure this out. Every forum thread I read says "Oh, just enable ICS and away you go!..." but I can't find any detailed troubleshooting.

I know this is theoretically possible, but could I please get input who have personally made it work! Thanks so much everyone!


Cheers!
