ICS Windows/Linux - Client not quite working right -.-


I am running a home network, with 2.2mbps ADSL, the host computer is a Windows Xp, and the client is currentley running linux (linspire 4.5) There are certian things i cannot seem to connect to on the client, it would sometimes come up and say things like "Cannot find" and it wont connect to msn messenger at all. I have tryed several operating systems on the client, hoping that a format would solve the problem... -.- no joy. I am running zone alarm on the windows computer, but it is set to let the net work through. Any ideas?

my idea would be to reverse your machines - ie. use the linux box as the internet gateway.
