Desktop>Laptop ICS problem...

Hello all this is my first post here....after searching th enet ros days I simply had to make a post about my problem.

Im trying to use ICS between a desktop and laptop both using Windows7. It seems I can set it up fine, but the laptop has no internet connection and showing as Unidentified Network.

Im new to Windows7 so it may be user error.

We need a lot more info but in the interim did you share the desktop with the lappy?

Whats the specs on both, what have you done to ICS? whats the network setup, etc
