Hey guys
I'm facing a small problem. I have a ADSL modem connected to my USB port. I have a laptop connected to a switch on my Ethernet port. I would like the laptop to be able to access the internet through the Desktop. So i wen to Network Connection and used the Network Setup Wizard. I follow the wizrd smoothly till the part where it actually begins creating the connection and i get a message saying that an error has occured and then the wizrd closes.

Desktop Settings:
Subnet mask :

Laptop Settings:
Subnet mask :

Thats all the settings that are configured on both computers. I can sharee files and folders flawlessly but i'm unable to share an Internet connection. Could this be because i've disbaled a few services on my desktop. Please let me know what the services required by ICS so that i can enable them.
