    You stated you have a broadband connection. Why are you sharing dial up you
    do not have a dial up connection. On your main PC,go to contol panel/wireless
    setup and transfer wizard and follow the prompts.

    By "sharing my dialup", just what do you mean? ICS? Let's back up just a
    bit, and find out what you do have.

    How does the desktop make the Internet connection; USB modem? Ethernet
    modem? Do you have a router? Or are you just running a wireless network
    adapter in the desktop?

    i have a usb adsl modem on my desktop and a Belkin wireless network adapter
    ..the laptop has built in wireless network . i have ran through the ICS setup
    on both and as i say i have a network connection and can share files also i
    can see my broadband connection on the laptop but cant use it

    Using this USB setup the ADSL modem will only supply one ip address to the
    computer that it's connected to, thus you would have to use ICS(internet
    connection sharing) to "share" this address.

    Many of these ADSL devices also have an RJ45(ethernet) jack-looks like a
    phone jack but wider and with more pins.

    You don't mention anything about your wireless setup that seems to work
    fine, so I will assume that you have some type of wireless router.
    If that IS the case AND your ADSL modem HAS an ethernet port, then you could
    plug a cable from the modem to the WAN port on the router, then ethernet
    cable from any port on router to desktop. Laptop will still be wireless.

    Post back with specific details such as:
    Wireless connection: do you have wireless cards in each computer? or do you
    have a wireless router? How do you connect the two using wireless?
    ADSL modem: is yours USB only or does it have an ethernet port?

    You only run ICS on one computer. You share the adapter connection to the
    USB ADSL modem. You share no other adapter, and you do not run ICS on any
    other computer.
