im trying to set it up so that my desktop can use my laptop's connection. I have had both plug into the router. The laptop is connected to the net. i check the network connections in/on the desktop and they both say connected. When i check on the network connections on the laptop the desktop has no connection to the net. is there something that needs to be changed in the router?

I started your own thread for you here.

I don't understand. You had both PCs connected to the router, and now you want to have one connect through the other? Please describe in more detail what network you are trying to set up.

i wanted it set up so that the desktop could share the wireless connection in the laptop. ive done this type of set up before with another desktop and it didnt seem to be any issues. Im running windows 7 on the laptop and XP on the desktop. My connections to the router appear to be correct as does the settings on the adapter and network card yet my desktop cannot connect to the net.
