Setup

Desktop
LAN 1 - DSL (Auto-DCHP) (ICS)
LAN 2 - Cross Cable ( Laptop A ) 192.168.0.1/255.255.255.0

Laptop A
LAN 1 - Cross Cable ( Desktop )
WLAN - AD-HOC ( Laptop B )

LAN 1 & WLAN = Bridge Network 192.168.0.43 (Auto-DHCP)

Laptop B

WLAN - AD-HOC ( Laptop A ) 168.xxx.xxx.xxx

*** Both WLAN Card is set to AD-HOC and WEP is disabled.

Problem

Laptop B can't get a connection and cant get a valid IP from Laptop A's WLAN AD-HOC connection which result to a no internet connection. No firewall whatsoever and no router. Any more details needed? Help please.

By the way Laptop A's connection is good.

You could try manually assigning an IP to see if it isn't just a borked DHCP server or configuration but I'd probably try to redo the bridge first.
