How to: disable ICS public connection in Vista

Postby chicagotech » Thu Feb 08, 2007 11:40 am

Disabling ICS public connection from ICS client is supported in Vista also.
In Vista network window, right click menu on "Residential Gateway" has the
option to enable/disable ICS public connection. For this option to show up in
right click menu, Network sharing need to be enabled and machine should have
got 192.168.0.X address.

Does right clicking on Residential Gateway icon couple of times helped in
getting the required option?
Also please check if connecting laptop directly (without router, using wired
connection) to XP machine, makes the option appear in right click menu.

The above information might help in understanding why disable option is not
coming for you.
