Right-click on DisabledComponents, and hit Delete.

That key is the lock key. Get rid of it will allow u to enabled ipv6.

It's cool to do it, your can always put it back.

Click the "Change adapter setting" in left hand side of "Network and sharing". Highlight:
1) The Virgin Broadband adapter, and
2) The Fan's network (assuming it's your LAN adapter).

When both are higlighted, righ-click on the shading, and bridge connection.

There should now be a new bridge connection created in that area. Try it.

I found this post and it's exactly what I am trying to accomplish. I was able to do this with XP but not Win 7. I can ping the NIC on my host computer from my wireless laptop.

Right now I have the 3G shared out with ICS, the NIC was assigned the 192.168.137.1 IP so I changed the IP scheme on the router to the same subnet and made the default gateway on the NIC the IP on the router.
Worked in XP
I have not been able to bridge the 3G adapter and my NIC.
I have a plan B and that is a USB wifi antennae and create an ad hoc hot spot. Just prefer the security of the router.

Hairy One did you succeed with setting this up?
