I have just brought a D-Link Wireless USB Adapter and have that plugged into my desktop and I am trying to get my notebook which has wireless LAN card in it to be able to share my internet connection.
My desktop has the internet connection and I want the notebook to use it. I have a connection between the 2 computers but cant view eachothers files so I know something is wrong there.
Does anyone know what the hell I have done for this not to work?
Thanks In Advance

Hi there Peita,

How do u wish to share the internet connection ? Do u have a router?

In case u do not have a router, then you may share a single internet
connection using a proxy or ICS which is available with Windows. Check out
the below site for more info:
http://mvps.org/nibblesnbits/PortRoute.html#ics

Furthemore, dont forget to change the wireless adapter's mode to Ad-Hoc.

Finally, before u proceed with settings up a Proxy or ICS, check whether yer
able to ping both computer. You must be able to ping the Notebook from
desktop and the desktop from notebook. A successful connection will result
in 4 replies.
