The method is OS dependant, please post more details of both systems.

Alternatively you can bypass ICS and use a proxy server such as click here

If you both have x\p. Go to control panel \ network connections. Right click the network card and pick properties. Place a tick in the show icon in notification area when connected. This will tell both computers when the network is enabled.

On the same page open network tasks. Then pick setup a home or small office network. Make sure both computers are running and are connected to the crossover cable. Also make sure that the main computer has it's internet up and running. Now follow the prompts for the computer with the internet, make sure you pick the internet share option. Then do the same with your brothers machine.
