Hello all,

I am having a problem when I am trying to enable my internet connection sharing (ICS) on my computer. I am trying to share my internet connection from my computer with my Xbox 360. I have had this working before, but here in the last day or two every time I go to start ICS I get one system message and two error messages. When I open my network connections window I have my wireless network connection and my local area connection avalable. (see pic).

When I right click on my wireless internet connection and choose properties for that connection, and then I click on the sharing tab. Then I check the box next to "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection". Then I click "OK" and I recieve this system message (see pic). And then its followed by an error message a few seconds later (see pic).

I have even gone in to my "services" window and tried to activate ICS from there and I get another error message (see pic). I would like to know why I cant turn on ICS when I have had it on before and working to give internet to my Xbox. I am now lost on this subject and don't know what else to do about it. Any help anyone can give me concering this problem would be apprecited. Many thanks in advance. :D
