    Hi,
    I have windows 7 Pro installed. I have a DSL connection that requires a username and password. I have read the tutorials for setting up ICS in windows 7, but it is not working for me. In my 'change adapter settings' page, I have 3 connections: LAN, Wireless and M 1 (this is the dial-up for the username and password). Here's what I have done:

    I have enabled ICS for M 1, and created an ad-hoc wireless connection called 'M network'. I basically want to share my wired connection with my iPhone. Everything is ok as far as connecting my iPhone to M network, but when I try to use the internet, all i get is a 'connecting' message on my phone, and it doesnt go any further. I have used this network before to connect 'air mouse' on my phone that lets me use my phone as a touchpad. It still works fine that way, but I cant use internet.

    I have even tried enabling the ICS on LAN instead, but got the same results.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Can you post the following for the connected machine?


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

    In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following command:

    Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
    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.

    For an easier way of turning a Wired (ethernet) internet connection into a Wireless connection to share with you Phone, Friends, etc. Check out Connectify - Connectify is for Windows 7 only. The 'virtualized' adapters was adding in windows 7, but a easy front end didn’t. So Connectify adds the easy front end!

    Thanks for the suggestion though MBaer. I am marking this as solved. It doesn't seem to be my computer's fault.
