Re: connecting xp and vista in home network

First of all you will need to disable the satic IP and ICS (if you have set previously). After that go to Control panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing center > Managing network connections (on the right corner)> Select all connections > right click on one of the connection > click "Network bridging". When finished, right click on the icon of Network Bridge > select "properties" > unlock the UAC >remove the tick of your internet connection in the upper box > click "OK". After that right click the icon of your internet connection > select "properties" > unlock the UAC > go to the "sharing" page, tick both check box. > click "OK". Thats it
