So I have 2 machines running ubuntu 10.04 Im having troubles sharing my wifi connection from my laptop to my desktop via a crossover ethernet cord. Im using a xbox system link cord which is a crossover.

I followed these instructions: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Internet/ConnectionSharing

Ive had no luck picking up anything on my desktop. Any ideas?
