Trying to ICS with wireless laptop/wired computer

    Ok I don't have a wireless card for my moms house so I decided to use my little sisters laptop that does have a wireless card and ICS it wired to my computer. Now I can ping the laptop and it responds but for some reason I still cant get the computer to conect to the internet. I think it isn't sharing the wireless connectgion but it is sharing through the wire, only locally. I need help and I dont think I worded it right

    My computer ---- Laptop |X| laptop wireless card---internet

    It wont let me go
    my computer ----laptop->Laptop Wireless card----internet

    You have turned on ICS on the laptop by right clicking on the wireless card and telling it to share the internet connection, correct?

    What IP address does your computer get? Run an IPCONFIG /all and paste the results here.

    The wireless card doesn't have an option to share

    Try going into the wired connection's properties and make sure both options in the sharing tab are unchecked.

    Have you tried setting up a network bridge?
