I've installed a WiFi Adapter in my Windows XP PC and created an ad-hoc network. I am able to connect to the network through my iPod Touch.
On the same PC I have a LAN connection to the Internet. I need to share this internet connection to my iPod too. The problem is Windows did not assign an IP Address (even though assign IP address automatically is selected) to this WiFi network. When I tried to share the Internet connection, I got a message that LAN Network Adapter's IP address will be changed to But if this happens I will not be able to connect to other devices/servers in my LAN Network.

Also I see that I don't have the option to share the Internet connection on my actual LAN connection. I see this option only for WIFI Connection.

How do I share the Internet connection through WiFi?
