My set up is

DSL netgear wired DG router
2 computers wired to router
1 of those computers connected with wifi to a laptop

i am using automatic ip addressing with the router being, and the computers being,3

i want to share the internet connection to the laptop.
the wireless network connects, but when i try to enable internet connection sharing on the LAN connection on the computer, i tells me that:

'internet connection sharing cannot be enabled.
a LAN connection is already configured with the IP address that is required for automatic IP address.'

Any help is greatly appreciated

thinking that maybe the ip address of the router ( maybe needed for ICS, i have changed the router to, and the two computers are now,31. However this has not solved the problem , it still says that the IP needed for ICS is in use. im now stuck on what to try next
