Windows 7: Windows 7 and ICS routing

Windows 7 and ICS routing

I have a windows 7 ultimate machine that connects wirelessly with my router (192.168.1.x) and is also connected through wired lan (192.168.137.x) to a switch. The win7 has ICS enabled in order to give internet access to the machines. My problem is that I cannot ping from the rest of the wireless devices (192.168.1.x) any of the wired devices (192.168.137.x).

I have added a route to my router to route packets to the (which is the wireless interface of the Win7 machine) but the win7 doesn't send the packets to the other interface.

I know that I must add something to the Win7 route table but I have played around and couldn't find it

This is the result from the traceroute

1 ( 4.773 ms 1.230 ms 1.268 ms

I have also attached a diagram to help you

thanks for looking
