I have 2 laptops one has xp and the other has windows 7 installed. I had connected both of them wirelessly and had checked the allow internet sharing option on the laptop with windows 7. However we are still unable to access the internet on the xp laptop wirelessly. We have tried almost all possible options including firewall, Internet sharing and antivirus as well.
Please help as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance !

By internet sharing, do you mean Windows Internet Connection Sharing -- which is not needed if the computers each have wireless adapters which will connect directly with the router. In fact ICS will stop you connecting direct because it messes with the IP address. Disable it.

NOW i wanna use internet on my XP laptop through the pre-established wireless connection(ICS) between them."

Well, what you're proposing is that an existing adhoc connection via wireless between the two laptops should be adapted to include a connection to the router.

You won't be able to connect to the router wirelessly, because both computers' wireless adapters are engaged in the ad hoc connection. There may be a way by connecting one computer to the router by ethernet cable and trying to do ICS via wireless between the two computers. I don't know -- or at least it's not mentioned in Windows Help as far as I know.

But it does strike me you're trying to invent the wheel when a perfectly good one exists already. If you have a wireless router and two wireless equipped computers link them to the internet and to each other via the router. If the router doesn't have wireless, get one that does or add a wireless access point.

Fih's right, you can have only one concurrent interface running from a single adapter, in this case it would be you wireless ADHOC connection.
