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.

      Thank you too much.

      It helped me too much and these instructions are completely correct. I used it on one LAN pc with 3g connected, one laptop with wireless and two android phones with wireless. There was a Zyxel ADSL modem with one lan port and wireless feature. Only don't forget to assign same ip class for other computers like 192.168.0.2, 192.168.0.3, 192.168.0.4, 192.168.0.5....

      Thanks again...

      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

      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

      hello raj

      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.

      @saira if you r connecting ur modem through lan card then u need to set lan ip 192.168.0.1, next only skype is working on internet. you need to check proxy settings of internet explorer. go to internet options window to check that.

      Hi rajkishor09,

      I have two pc's at my home one is celeron 1GHz and other one is Pentium HT with 128 & 256 MB of RAM. I have connected them with D-Link Switch and followed your instruction.

      The problem is both are able to ping IP address of each other but the browser of Celeron PC shows "Cannot find . Make sure the path or Internet address is correct" i have cross-checked each and every thing.

      Celeron Pc has d-link lan card while Pentium one has on-board lan card !

      Plz help !!!

      Thanks in advance !!!
