Okay I did that and it did not work earlier. However is this what I am suppose to do to make it clear. Where it says, Default Gateways I put in 192.168.1.254 then click add yes? then okay? If this is what I was supose to do I already did it and it did not work.

Thanks

Reboot the laptop and tell me what it says in the Network and Sharing Center page under active networks. Also check if Network Discovery is on or off in Advanced Sharing settings.
