    Internet Connection Sharing

    Hey guys ive been working on this for a while but can't figure it out. Im
    trying to turn on Internet Connection Sharing on my laptop that has wireless
    internet. When i right click on the connection and go to properties-sharing
    and click on the box to enable ICS it gives me the error message "An error
    occured while Internet Connection Sharing was being enabled." Since this
    doesnt work i tried to go to RUN-SERVICES and enable it from there but when i
    click start it tell me that "The internet connection sharing (ICS) service on
    Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if
    they are not in use by other services or programs." Anyone have a clue as to
    what is wrong here and why i can't turn it on? Thanks!

    Hi
    just want to say that I have the same problem, everything you described.
    I've seached everywhere looking for a solution but can't find any. I just
    don't know what to do next. If I find an answer I'll get back to you.

    How are the other computers you are trying to share the internet connection
    connected to your laptop?
