Here's a checklist of things for ICS and file sharing for 2 croslinked computers (This is what works for Win 7 and XP):

- both computers set to the same workgroup
- restarts
- advanced sharing settings - all things turned on (network discovery etc.) except for password protected sharing
- bridged the connection with the internet
- turned on Internet Connection Sharing for the internet connection - this forced an ip to the other connection (192.168.137.1) and gave an option to select which connection should have access to the ICS (the second connection or the bridge - you choose the second / crosslinked cable connection)
- shared some folders on both computers
- worked instantly (the other pc aquired a correct ip and internet)

Thank you for replay

both computers are set to the same workgroup
done a restart many times
All things are on except password protected sharing and file sharing connections are set to use 128-bit encryption which is recommended
bridged the connection with the internet - well I am not sure about this
I turned on internet connection sharing for my internet connection, but I donít understand the rest of the message. this forced an ip to the other connection (192.168.137.1) and gave an option to select which connection should have access to the ICS (the second connection or the bridge - you choose the second / crosslinked cable connection)?
I shared some folders and they are ok

I have to mention that file sharing works fine but internet is the only problem.I would like to attach some screenshots but i'm not sure how to do that
