Do you have internet connection sharing enabled?

PS. An unusual choice of IP range for the private network, the normal selection would be more like 192.168.0.1 for the PC and 192.168.0.24 for the Dreambox, you can of course use anything you want, but it is probably better to use a range designated for LANs.

The 192.168.xx routes packet requests onto an internal network. 100.100.100.x etc is an allocated domain out on the internet! (It doesnt seem to route anywhere as if you put http://100.100.100.1 in to your browser, it doesnt resolve). (There is a second internal domain ip address range = 127.0.0.x) And make sure you keep the subnet masks the same.

Yes, Analogue is right.

Set your PC address to 192.168.0.1. Set your Dreambox address to 192.168.0.24. Set the gateway addresses AND the DNS addresses on both to 192.168.0.1. Set both subnets to 255.255.255.0. Turn off DHCP on both machines, and set the PC to run ICS (Internet Connection Sharing). Do ths in the properties of your PC's external network connection (Internet connection), or use the network setup wizard.

Good luck.
