How to Share an Internet Connection on LAN

Updated on March 20, 2017

If you have a fully functional LAN then net sharing is just a few clicks away.

  • First, make sure that you already have a broadband connection and account configured on your PC.
  • Go to “My Network Places” and then "Properties," and then select your broadband connection.
  • Right click on your connection and select "Properties."
  • A broadband properties dialog box should appear. Select the “Advanced” tab.

See the image below:

Broadband connection properties selection.
Broadband connection properties selection.
  • Check “Allow other network users to connect through this computer" under Internet Connection Sharing
  • Uncheck both "Establish a dial-up connection whenever a computer on my network attempts to access the Internet" and "Allow other netowrk users to control or disable the shared Internet connection."
  • Press “OK.”
  • You should see a message stating that the IP address of your PC will be set to “192.168.0.1”. Click "OK." (If you assigned this address to any other computer then change it to something else otherwise it will create an IP address conflict error.)

Broadband connection properties dialog box.

  • A hand-like icon should appear below the broadband connection, indicating that it has been shared.

  • On the other PC you want to join the network, select “My Network Places” properties.
  • Right-click on your LAN connection and select properties. A LAN Properties dialog box should be appear.
  • Select “Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)” as you did when you assigned the IP address.
  • Click properties button. An "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) properties” dialog box should appear.
  • Enter the “Default Gateway” and “DNS Server” IP as shown in the image below. Repeat this step on other PCs too.

Default gateway & DNS server IP assigning.
Default gateway & DNS server IP assigning.
  • Connect to the Internet on the server PC, the one actually attached to the Internet, then try to access the Internet on the other PC(s). Congratulations, you're done!

Troubleshooting, In Case That Didn't Work...

  • Check your LAN connection. If you can access Shared Folders then follow next step, otherwise you need to check Internet sharing from beginning.
  • You need to check your internet connection again. Press window key + R, now type this without quotes “ping www.google.com -t”. If you get reply as in the image below then net-sharing is OK. Your Internet browser is corrupted or its settings have been changed to use a proxy address. Please turn off all proxy addresses. Now you should able to browse.

      Now, I don't even think twice about it, but I sure do wish I had this great guide the first time I tried...

      I have a static ip address assigned to me by the internet service provider. When I follow your step mentioned above the ip address of my machine will change to 192.168.0.1 and I lose my internet connection. As this ip is not the same as the static ip asigned to me.

      @SID : you can create LAN of three computers and share internet connection too. There is no problem if you have static IP for internet. Just follow the same tutorial. If you face problem then please contact me through “contact rajkishor09”.

      @genius1232 : While sharing you need to select LAN card of you LAN rather than internet. If you share LAN using static IP then there shouldn’t be any problem. Please send me details how you shared you LAN and IP address assigned etc through “contact rajkishor09”.

      @AshokSingh Rajput : I guess your LAN has dynamic IPs too so share try to share internet using “Internet Connection Sharing”. Please contact me through “contact rajkishor09”.

      Thank you guys for visiting and reading me.

      @ganesh : If you have two lan card connected then at the time of Internet sharing you can see a drop box which will display all lan cards. Select connection of lan card and press OK.

      Sharing process is same for dynamic and static IPs if u face problem then ask me.

      Hi,

      I have setup the ICS with a Desktop(ICS) and a Laptop(client). Each has one ethernet adapter. The Desktop is connected to internet using SmartAX MT882 ADSL, through USB cable. The Laptop and Desktop are connected by LAN RJ45 cable.

      When the settings for ICS are done as per the above post, the ICS works fine on both computers.

      The problem:

      When the client(laptop) is rebooted or comes alive after standby, I am not able to access internet on Laptop.

      On Desktop the internet works fine.

      Can someone suggest how to solve the above problem, so that whenever the laptop reboots or comes alive after standby, it is able to access internet in sharing mode.

      Hi,

      The problem I faced is solved as,

      I have enabled firewall in Dialup, LAN connection on host(Desktop) and LAN connection on client (Laptop). In this setup when laptop is rebooted, powered off and then made ON,

      or wake up from standby the internet connection sharing is lost.

      When the firewall setting on the LAN connection in Host (Desktop) is removed, while on others it is maintained, the ICS works on Laptop in all situations of standby and reboot.

      this works on dynamic IP? bcos im using dynamic IP.

      Now check “Allow other network users to connect through this computer" internet connection” and uncheck below two options. Now press “OK” button. This will give you a message stating that IP address of present working PC will be set to “192.168.0.1”, click OK. If you assigned this address to any other computer then change it to something else otherwise it will give IP address conflict error.

      i want to ask, if there is any method by which we can allocate different bandwidths to different users connected on a shared LAN. for eg, if i and my friend are connected to same LAN and my frind is downloading a movie. so i get less speed. i want to know if by any way i can increase my speed, may at the cost of his speed. or to put it in a better way, can i set priority so that LAN will respond to my requests???

      You article is great, and I was able to follow it closely. I am try to connect the wireless internet from my lap top to my PC that has no wireless and is too far from the modem to give it a wired connection.

      Whenever I try I try the process above I get this message:

      "An error occurred while Internet Connection Sharing was being enabled.

      Internet Connection Sharing cannot be enabled. A LAN connection is already configured with the IP address that is required for automatic IP addressing."

      I have tried to "release" and "renew" the ip address of both computers, but the PC cannot renew because it cannot connect. I am running Windows 7 on both computers (but the process for sharing is the same as XP, could follow relatively all steps).

      Can you help me? I have done multiple Google searches with no luck at all, just getting more confuse.

      Thanks in advanced,

      Greg

      How can I distribute internet in shared internet connection in LAN.?

      In LAN where all computers connect to internet through a server computer running windows XP and shared internet connection, can we limit each computer connected to it to use only specific bandwidth e.g computer A should use only 8Kbps and computer B should use only 6KBPs etc.

      Hi, I used to share my internet between 2-3 desktops a few years back, using both dial-up and broadbrand, i have recently purcahsed a laptop and set up a LAN network using an ethernet cable from my desktop to my dynalink router and then connected my laptop to the router via wireless(now have dial-up). The LAN works fine, I can do gaming and file/printer sharing, and I eventually got an Internet Gateway late one night, i dont know how i got it, it was just there. the next morning it disappeared but was still internet sharing, then that stopped aswell. Today i managed to get the internet gateway back using static IP's, and everything you mentioned in the steps other than DNS server but i still cant use the internet on the other computer, regardless of whether i use it through my laptop or my desktop, i changed this after reading your article, didn't help at all, then done the proxy command promt and it came up blank...how can i get internet sharing back?????

      Thanks HEAPS
