First of all, you are using a non-standard IP addressing scheme for your
lan. Is this required by your modem? Windows Internet Connection
Sharing (ICS) only supports using IP addresses of 192.168.0.1 for the
gateway and 192.168.0.xx for client machines. I'll give you links
explaining how to set up ICS, but your best course of action would be
to buy a home router (Linksys, Netgear, Belkin, etc.) instead.
