    Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

    What country are you located in.
    Name of your ISP (Internet Service Provider).
    Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
    Make and exact model of the router (if a separate unit).
    Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.
    Connection type, wired or wireless.
    If wireless, encryption used, (none, WEP, WPA, or WPA2)
    Make and model of your computer.
    Version and patch level of Windows on all affected machines, i.e. XP-Home (or XP-Pro), SP1-SP2, Vista, etc.
    The Internet Browser in use, IE, Firefox, Opera, etc.




    Please give an exact description of your problem symptoms, including the exact text of any error messages.

    If you're using a wireless connection, have you tried a direct connection with a cable to see if that changes the symptoms?

    If there are other computers on the same network, are they experiencing the same issue, or do they function normally?




    On any affected computer, I'd also like to see this:

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

    Type the following commands:

    PING 216.109.112.135

    PING yahoo.com

    NBTSTAT -n

    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.

    I don't know why it's not working, maybe something was done in the wrong order. Disable ICS, back the whole way out of Network Connections and Restart the PC. Then enable ICS again, back the whole way out of Network Connections and look at another ipconfig /all.

    If the wireless IP address is now 192.168.0.1, restart the other PC and see if you now have internet on it.

    The desktop now looks good, but the laptop did not get assigned an IP configuration from the desktop.

    This could be because they are not connecting to each other wirelessly or because of a 3rd party firewall (internet security) on either or both.

    On each computer you defined an ad-hoc (not infrastructure) wireless network, same SSID, same channel (or auto) and no encryption, right?

    You're welcome. My (limited) experience with ad-hoc wireless is that it can be difficult and kinda random getting it to work the first time, but then it works pretty well afterwards.
