Have you enabled internet sharing on the pc?????

To do this click start > Settings > Network connections > right click on the connection being used to access the internet and enable the option "allow other users to connect through this computers internet connection" That maybe it

Yes that is enabled and the connection is showing as shared, should I just be able to open web sites straight from my laptop or is there some kind of login procedure.I realise I need to be connected and on line via the pc.
