I would also check your antivirus program is set to allow the connection

In order to run Internet Connection Sharing, the computer must have at least two network adapters installed - one to connect to the internet and a second to connect to the "client" computers. In the adapter that is used to connect to the internet, tick the box "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection".

When you do this, the adapter with which you're connecting the Client computer will be given the IP address by Windows. The Client computer will get its address automatically by DHCP from the Host computer and in the subnet (IP address range). Because ICS uses this subnet, it is important that your router doesn't have the address and allocate addresses in the range to, otherwise there will be a conflict. The router's own address would have its third octet (number) changed from zero to 1 or 2 etc.

Can you from a cmd prompt type ipconfig /all from both pcs when connected to the internet and post the results. To get cmd prompt type cmd.exe in the search and then type into the black box
