Default trouble with internet sharing...

okay i have a modem connected to a wireless linksys router which my computer (with xp pro) is connected with (wirelessly)...now i have another computer (also with xp pro) which i connected to my wireless computer with a cat5 crossover cable because i am trying to share files and share an internet connection with my wireless computer. now, one problem is that network setup wizard never completes successfully one my wireless computer....but it always works on the other one. and another problem is that whenever i try clicking 'allow other network users to connect through this computer's internet connection' it says 'the specified service does not exist as an installed service'. okay...?? so if its not installed....how exactly do i install it?? also, i've tried making a bridge between my wireless and lan connection and it still does not work...wtf? thanx to anyone who helps me out here...

nevermind fellas...i figured it out....i'm laughing my ass off right now...the only reason my internet wasn't working on the other computer was because i had to type 'www' in the browser i use LOL. i always tested my internet connection by typing in a web address....but i never included the www...hahahaha
