Windows XP Internet Connection Sharing


WinXP LogoInternet
Connection Sharing (ICS) enables a Windows computer to share its
Internet connection with computers on local area networks. It’s
been around since Windows 98 SE, and with the launch of Windows
XP, it’s only gotten better.

Windows XP ICS has some notable advantages over the versions of
ICS in Windows 98 Second Edition and Windows Me:

  • It’s easier
    to set up
    . There’s no software to install, and it doesn’t
    add any network components or protocols.
  • It’s much
    more reliable and much less likely to cause network problems.
  • You can create
    a Network Bridge connecting
    two or more local area networks and share the Internet connection
    with the computers on all of them. This is especially useful if
    your XP computer is connected to both a wired and wireless network.
  • ICS
    client computers can use XP’s
    Internet Gateway
    to monitor and control

[Total: 2    Average: 5/5]

This tutorial explains how to add desktop gadgets in Windows 10. In the long course of its (continued) development over the past couple of years, the Windows line of Operating Systems has seen a lot of changes being made to it, making each subsequent version of Windows better than its predecessor(s).

One such interesting feature, that I’m sure everyone who’s ever worked with Windows Vista or 7 will remember are Desktop Gadgets.

When Microsoft unveiled Windows 10, they took the opportunity to sweep Internet Explorer under the rug in favor of Edge.
