    First of all thank you for taking the time to read this.

    In my wireless network, there is no option of turning on ICS, like in my LAN network. On other websites they tell me how to do this, by going to the advanced tab on the network properties, but the option of turning on ICS isn't there.

    the picture here of my LAN network, (ICS is available to be turned on/off)

    and this is one on the other website that allows it to be turned on in wireless networking....

    the reason i need to turn on ICS on my wireless network is so that i can run my Xbox 360 over my wireless desktop computer with access to Xbox Live (the internet on the xbox)...

    So what to do? thank you all (y)

    Make sure your ethernet connection is enabled. Now do you get the option to enable ICS on the wireless network? (You do not get the ICS option when no other network connection is enabled.)

    Let's see this:

    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

    after i enter in IPCONFIG /ALL, the cmd prompt window comes up but then terminates immediately, I don't know why, cmd just closes after a second it is opened.

    Unless you are typing "ipconfig /all" is less than a second I'm guessing that you tried typing it into the Run box instead of into a Command prompt window as JohnWill suggested to do--"Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:".

    TerryNet: enabling my other one doesn't work, I'm still left without the option to enable ICS

    That ipconfig /all shows that you do have ICS enabled on some connection, there is no sign of a wireless connection, and you are connected to a router using the 192.168.0.x subnet so ICS is doomed to failure (because ICS uses that subnet).

    Disable ICS on whatever connection it is now on; change the router to use, say, 192.168.1.x; enable both the wireless and ethernet connections; and then enable ICS on whatever connection has the internet access.

    Actually, there is no sign of a wired connection, I think the DWL-G510 Wireless PCI Adapter is probably the wireless one. :)

    Terry is trying to tell you that ICS can't function with only one network adapter, so you'll have to enable the wired adapter to get any farther with the effort.

    What was the clue--the word "wireless"? :)

    Thanks for the correction, John.
