    A request time out means that it could not find your computer. Check your IP configurations on both machines. From your post, one of your NIC cards should have an IP address of 192.168.0.1 with subnet of 255.255.255.0. Your laptop should be 192.168.0.x with subnet of 255.255.255.0 and gateway of 192.168.0.1 and DNS of 192.168.0.1

    To check for this infomration, do IPCONFIG /ALL > C:\IPCONFIG.TXT on both machines. I realise that you will not be able to get the laptop info up here but go to C:\ and open up IPCONFIG.TXT and copy and paste the entire infomation. For your laptop you will need to type it.

    The subnet mask should be the same. I have always hated ICS because it seems to be more trouble than it's worth.

    If you are using a broadband service for internet (as in DSL or Cable) then for the sake of sanity I would strongly recommend getting a router instead of using ICS.

    Anyways, can you provide me with the full text of your IPCONFIG log? Like I said you can copy and paste the entire log from your computer's log, but you will need to manually type the other one from your laptop.
