Right, Where to start.

Trying to link my Laptop with PC to share connection and files. Have Crossover cable Run network setup.

Problem is laptop will not access internet (ICS enable on PC) Connect to Net thru USB connection and have a Ethernet connection on laptop and PC

Whatever i do i cannot access anything on Laptop from PC but can access files on PC.

Can anyone help me from here?

Have you tried turning off any firewalls just to rule them out, if you have 3rd party firewall once you have turned it off go into control panel and check windows firewall is off because it can switch on when 3rd party is switched off.

If on XP run the network wizard from control panel on both machines
