How can i share the wifi on my Win 7 computer with a server 2003?

I have a computer running Windows Server 2003 that i would like to connect to my computer running Windows 7 ultimate. i have done everything it says to in the videos and tutorials but i cannot get the server to connect to the internet. i can connect to it via remote desktop but it cannot connect to the internet nor can any other computers on my network see the server only the Windows 7 PC that the server is connected to. Please Help!!!

FYI - I have the win server 2003 connected to the Win 7 computer via Ethernet and i set up saring on the win 7 computer but it still cannot connect to the internet.

Have you tried Bridging the connections?

It works for me, my Windows 7 getting internet wirelessly from router, my pc is ethernet connected to the Windows 7 and i bridge the two connection and works. If you Windows 7 is LAN connected to you router/modem tri bridging the two LAN connections as i don't have two LANs to test sorry.

Btw, you won't need ICS in this case.
