Hii Fellas.. Now a days i am suffering this sharing problem. I have 3 Computers on my network and earlier i used to share my connection to the rest of the PCs. but now i am not getting "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection" option in the advanced option tab which i used to have earlier. Any help would be appreciated.

That is a common option programmed in and legacy from back with older Windows where you share a single connection by daisy chaining another PC off yours. BUT today, multiple ports on routers and WIRELESS make this mute (again back when there was dialup etc.), so if you and the other computers all connect to the same router, the router should be connected to your ISP modem (Cable, DSL, etc.) then the router/modem is providing the Internet service, NOT your computer.

Instead of using that option go into adapter settings for internet and select the connections and right click and select bridge connections.
