Windows 7: Bridge internet connection over ethernet from wifi

Bridge internet connection over ethernet from wifi

My desktop is connected to a wifi network and I need to bridge to another via ethernet. I have started by selecting each network and I bridge the 2 connections, creating a bridge, but the other computer still doesn't have internet connection.

Is this possible (I would think so) and if so, what have I done wrong?
