    I dont know what I did but while I tried to see and manage the files on my 12"PB from my Desktop PC, I changed many settings both in PC and PB and I lost my internet sharing settings that I had before changing file sharing settings..

    for the first time I had plugged the cross cable to my PC and PB, I didnt have changed any settings and it worked just as I plugged, but today after changing file sharing settings, I lost my internet sharing.. Plus, now I cant play Diablo with TCP/IP multiplayer...

    I restored my PC original settings by "system restore" so the problem has to be with my 12"PB..

    anyone who knows a solution?

    is there anyway to restore my settings (go back to old settings) in MacOS X 10.2, like System Restore in WindowsXP does?

    please describe how you have things set up. How IPs are obtained and who is sharing the internet connection? The PC or the Mac?
