I've basic question on Internet Connection Sharing in Windows XP. I've a Internet Connection through LAN and I've created an Ad-hoc network that is supposed to share the internet connection.

Which connection should I enable "Internet Connection Sharing"? Is it on LAN Connection' Settings > Advanced of Ad-hoc network Connections' Settings > Advanced ?

I would actually recommend just using the Network Connection Wizard.

But that doesn't give an option to share the connection. – Apps Jun 29 '11 at 9:34
It does all of that stuff for you. – imtheman Jun 29 '11 at 17:01

You need to enable internet sharing on your LAN interface, to your WiFi interface.

So it's the former of your two options - "LAN connection settings" -> Advanced
