OK, i came to the end of my patience and computer knowledge...

Following problem: 2 PCs, 1 Laptop, 1 PCMCIA Wireless Adapter, 1 on board LAN on PC1, 1 on board LAN on PC2, one Ethernet Network Adapter on PC1, one PCI Wireless Adapter on PC1.
PC1: Win 2003 Server
PC2: Win XP Profesional
Laptop: Win XP Profesional
Internet Connection is Broadband through on board LAN on PC1. I want to share that Internet Connection to PC2 and Laptop. I bridge Ethernet Network Adapter and PCI Wireless Adapter on PC1 and share the Internet Connection. PC2 now has aces to the Internet.
Bridge: IP:
PC2: IP:
Subnet Mask:
Laptop: IP:
PC2 and Laptop also have the DNS from my ISP.
now, i should have successfully shared my Internet Connection to PC2 and the Laptop... but somehow the Laptop does not have access to the Internet. i can't seem to find any solutions to this problem. any ideas?
Thank you in advance

Did you configure the internet connection sharing using the ICS wizard on 2003, or did you use the "bridge connections" option in the networking control panel? Also, the subnet mask for 192.168.0.x is, as it's a class C (/24), not a class B (/16).
