can ping ips. Can't ping or open domain names

Specs: windows xp sp2, 3.199 GHz / 1526 MB
hello people,
my setup is as follows:
one wireless router with internet. Two PCs.
1st pc with wireless networking card AND lan card. 2nd pc with lan card
both pc have xp sp2
one hub.
The first pc connects via wireless to the internet and is connected to the hub via lan card.
The 2nd pc connects to the hub via lan card
wireless router ip:192.168.1.1
1st pc wireless card ip:192.168.1.40
1st pc lan card ip:192.168.0.1
2nd pc lan card ip:192.168.0.2
On the 1st pc wireless connection is shared via lan card using ICS
On the 2nd pc, ip gateway is set as 192.168.0.1
And dns provided by isp.
Can access internet from 1st pc. Cant from 2nd pc. Can ping 192.168.0.1, 192.168.1.1 and any other valid ip on the internet from the second pc. Tried using google public dns(which as usual the second pc pings). Opendns, 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.1.1 as the 2nd pc's dns, but no good.how do i get the net working on my 2nd pc without using a proxy?
Thanks in advance.
Abel

How about explaining why such a crazy setup when you have a wireless router?
What do you mean by 'And dns provided by isp."? You put the isps dns serve ip in for dns on the workstation?

There should be no gateway entry on lan nic in pc1

You first address why pc2 can't access the internet with ICS engaged.

its a part of a bigger setup. Pc1 has this on the wireless nic
ip:192.168.1.40
Gateway:192.168.1.1
Internet and network work fine on pc1. I have shared pc1 wireless nic via its lan card, using ics. So pc1 lan card gets an auto ip of 192.168.0.1

Pc2 was then given
Ip I92.168.0.2
Gateway 192.168.0.1
Pc1 and 2 are connected thru a hub.

i can ping 192.168.0.1 from pc2. I can access shares too if i use \\192.168.0.1
I can access the rest of the network too if i refer to the pcs using their ips but not with their names. Have tried winsock fix, although its a brand new setup, but no good. Thx 4 the reply.

restart pc1
Can you ping from pc2 to pc1?

It is OK to have the isp's dns ips on with wireless nic

if you can't ping from pc2 post a ipconfig /all from pc1 for review

is netbios over tcp/ip enabled [wins tab in tcp/ip properties] on both?

If you want to resolve names on the local lan create a hosts file

netbios setting set to default. changed to yes on both pcs, but no use.
Tried bridging the 2 nics on pc1
set the bridged ip to 192.168.1.41
with gateway
192.168.1.1
and on pc2
set the lan nic to
ip 192.168.1.42
gateway
192.168.1.1

can ping any correct ip - local or on the internet from pc2, but cannot ping domain names or open any website!

No ICS, why?
No wireless nic, why?
192.168.1.1 doesn't exist so there is no gateway.

ACCOUNT2
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.1
should be 192.168.1.41

Your ip setup is wrong. Where is the wireless card at 192.168.0.1? You need the lan card to be a 192.168.0.1 and the wireless to be 192.168.1.1

How about you just follow this article?
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306126

You will need to change your routers lan ip scope from x.x.0.x to x.x.1.x so ICS will work. ICS wants x.x.0.1 on the lan card

OK that looks fine except you shouldn't have the 4.2.2.2 as dns on the lan card. Not sure why you are using Verizon's dns servers instead of your ISP's but thats fine.

It does seem like you are missing information on the wireless nic.

Surely you can ping yahoo.com for example just fine from this pc? Can you do a successful tracert to yahoo.com?

How about the workstation's ipconfig /all for review.
