Edit: Split this Windows XP advice from Share Wi-Fi over Ethernet. @supperskidvn, these forums are for Gentoo support, except in Off the Wall. I also removed the commercial links from your signature as they are not allowed. — JRG

if you are using windows XP here is how it works.

To enable Internet Connection Sharing on a network connection, follow theses steps:

1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Network Connections.

2. Click the local area network (LAN) in your case it wout be the wireless on your laptop.connection or click the dial-up networking connection that you want to share (that is, the one that connects to the Internet), and then under Network Tasks, click Change settings of this connection.

3. On the Advanced tab, click to select the Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection check box.

4. If this is a dial-up networking connection, and you want the connection to be automatically dialed when another computer on your network tries to connect to the Internet, click to select the Establish a dial-up connection whenever a computer on my network attempts to access the Internet check box.

5. If you want to permit other network users to enable or to disable the shared Internet connection, click to select the Allow other network users to control or disable the shared Internet connection check box.

6. Under Internet Connection Sharing in Home networking connection, select the connection that connects the computer that is sharing its Internet connection to the other computers on your network.
Note that to enable Internet Connection Sharing in Windows XP, you must have administrative rights.

Important When you enable Internet Connection Sharing, the network adapter that is connected to the home network or to the small-office network receives a new static IP address of 192.168.0.1, with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0. Existing TCP/IP connections on the network may be lost and must be reestablished.
