it seems that you are trying to share the 3G internet connection via a NIC on your Desktop, what Ip does laptop2 have?
December 9, 2011 7:51:42 AM

Automatically set
neither laptop one nor laptop two are able to connect to the internet

can you connect if the laptop is directly connected to the desktop?
December 9, 2011 7:57:32 AM

i was able to connect upto a little while ago..
before connecting the router to my desktop i was using a crossover cable to share the internet from Desktop to laptop successfully. But after connecting the router the crossover cable internet sharing is not working anymore..
my LAN adapter on Windows is showing Unidentified network(No valid IP). and on laptop(Ubuntu) i am not getting an internet connection.
Previously i used to get the connection on Ubuntu :(

you need to get the ICS on the Desktop working again before connecting the router as an AP.

once the ICS is working you should be able to get the IP info needed from the laptop to setup the router as an AP

make sure the DHCP is disabled on the router before you connect it to the desktop or it might disable the ICS

ICS was enabled and i was accessing internet on my other computers through LAN.
after experimenting with the router somehow i am unable to do that even.
the above pic is my current ICS config

did you assign a static ip to the desktop?

I expected the IP of the LAN to end in .1
December 9, 2011 8:42:25 AM

after enabling ICS i had set all the ip addresses to be set automatically
December 9, 2011 8:44:28 AM
