I would like to share an internet connection from a desktop machine to two laptops. So i went out to th ecomputer store an bought two "11 Mbs Wireless LAN" PC Cards and a "Wireless 11g" Access point.
Now the problem is, how do I get the laptops to use the desktops internet connection. The internet connection of the desktop is an always on broadband connection that works through a LAN (the connection is listed as "Local Area Connection" under Networking in the Control Panel).
I have tried to enable Internet Connection Sharing by right clicking on "Local Area Connection", then properties, then advanced, but there is no "enable ICS" check box there.. only the windows firewall checkbox. So then I tried to run the Networking Wizard and selected 'this computer connects directly to the internet and other computers connect to the internet through this computer', but I get an error at the end of the wizard: "Cannot Complete Network Setup Wizard
An error occured.. [there is no specific info here]"
So how do I share this internet connection?
