    Ok, i'm having some trouble with my little Internet Connection Sharing network. Only runs from my desktop to my laptop. When i set up both of them to be on the same network name and everything, it works fine. i can turn off and turn on, even disconnect the laptop from the network cable whenever i want, and just turn on/plug in the laptop and the internet works again. However, if i restart my desktop, it seems as if the connection is deleted. Can't access internet from laptop, but not sure about seeing files on the desktop computer through the laptop. haven't tried that. Only way to get internet working on laptop again that i have found was to go through the network setup wizard again and set it up. then it works fine. Anyone else have this problem or know how to solve it? do i actually have to make the network setup disc after i'm setting it up on the desktop, or can i just do it the manual way like i've been doing?
