Default Keep loosing my shared connection

sponsored links

Hiya guys basically i have a Pc connected to a router with 2 other PCs. All are running windows XP. The setup as far as i know is fine it is just every now and then the computing that is sharing the internet looses its sharing attribute.

The connection is lost somehow and a new one is created and not shared. For example:

Local Area Connection - Shared (USB) (Internet coming in)
Local Area Connection1 - not shared (Ethernet) (Internet going to router)

Then something happens where Local Area Connection is lost and a new connection Local Area Connection2 appears which is basically Local Area Connection but just not shared.

Before you say anything i have tried sharing the ethernet instead (the more logical way of sharing) but then both the internet on the main PC and all other PCs dont have access to the internet.

Help is greatly appreciated

First of all, if you have a router, why are you sharing the internet connection on a pc? why dont you connect all of the pcs to the router since it works as a switch/hub anyways?
