Share the internet from my laptop to my desktop. I see that others have posted on this subject before but I have been unsuccessful so far. Maybe one of you can point out what is wrong (my guess is its something simple).

I have:
*connected the 2 PCs with a Ethernet cable
*I can successfully share/transfer files between the 2 PCs
*When I found out the internet wasn't sharing, I manually changed the setting of the network adapter (IPv4) with the right ip/subnet



*I was unable to ping the two computer before I changed the settings of the network adapter. Even with being able to ping, the laptop still wouldn't let me share the internet.

*I have put everything back (all settings) that I changed to kind of start new

My laptop runs Windows 8 and my desktop runs Windows 7.

Thanks in advance for any help I get.

One of those PCs seems to be connected to a router. Did you enable ICS on that connection?

Then you are connected to the house's wireless router or to the house's router through a wireless access point.

Yes, ICS is the Internet Connection Sharing you show above. Working now?

I think it has something to do with the ip configuration because when I run the windows diagnostics, I get an error that says "Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration

Disable ICS, restart the laptop, enable ICS again and if still not working show another ipconfig /all please.

I should also let you know that my internet is all of a sudden SLOW. There is another laptop in the house and its internet is working fine

also i cant share files on between the 2 computers now. all the sharing settings are turned on and it was working not too long ago. not sure what I did to cause this

and Im not sure that I have said yet that "unidenifide network" is what comes up in the network and sharing center.

You now have ICS working on the laptop. But the desktop is not getting an IP configuration. Restart the desktop computer or disable/enable the connection.

If it still doesn't get a 192.168.137.x IP assigned maybe there is a firewall blocking.
