    I'm a little confused. Why is there a switch in the mix at all?

    2 pcs connect to one router

    Put switch away in its box for archival purposes heh.

    Am I missing something?

    If you have 10 devices and a 4-port router, the router aint gonna cut it!

    Sure, I hear that.

    From what I gather though, there are only 2 pcs involved that need network access.

    The one previously accessing using ICS should just be connected to the router instead, and it will receive access like the other machine already is.

    I remember things like this long ago. The user usually does give a good reason why they can't do it and they need ICS to work for some reason...I forget heh....perhaps like the 2 machines are close to another and they only ran one long CAT-5 cable from the router in another room. Things like that.
