    Not sure exactly how your setup there.
    But make sure your not assigning your laptop the same IP as your desktop.

    Change your gateway and DNS to match the one on your internet connection.

    here come out a question from me, can he use a crossover cable on this kind of networking? i guess he shouldn't, maybe this is giving some conflicts when the data goes throught the cable with the ICS service on both computers.

    and of course the default gateway and DNS are different so you must change it so both conexions can go on the same path.

    You can't connect two computers directly with a patch cable. You need some medium in between, or the crossover cable. Physically, ICS means nothing if there is no connection.
