November 28th, 2010, 02:41 PM
i have a laptop with Ubuntu 10.10 (with latest downloads) on it it is connected via wifi to our home router (which is a few rooms away). i have also plugged it in to my new windows 7 pc which only has Ethernet cable connection on it, this is done with a pc to pc patch cable. i can ping the windows seven pc from the laptop and i can ping the laptop from the w7 pc. i have this problem though i can not share the wifi Internet connection with the w7 pc i have looked on the laptop and put the ipv4 setting to (share with other computers) but i can not file share or connect to the Internet still can any one help me?

if more information is needed or you would like to know specs or something let me know
