Sharing internet from Android mobile phone through home LAN

I connect to internet through my android mobile phone. And I have connected LAN with my WIN7 computer on which is with USB connected Android phone and I have internet here but on my other WIN XP computer sometimes I have internet and sometimes I dont. Sharing is on, firewalls are off. Does anyone know something about this?

First off, Microsoft has dropped support for Windows XP and Office 2003 back on April 8th.
