I have a USB DataCard, want to use on two different laptops (Laptop-A has OS-Windows7 and Laptop-B has OS Windows XP.)

I have connected them via LAN Cable but has some problem (Ping from A to B is possible but reserve is not possible).

When i Connect Datacard on individual Laptops it works properly but i want to use it at a time on both laptops while i have done some settings on laptop-A in ControlPanel As

Network And sharing center ->Change Adapter setting ->right click on Datacard connection ->Properties ->Sharing ->Click on "Allow other user to connect through this computer's internet connection ->home network connection(select Local area network)

After this i have no idea what to do,now on laptop-B

Kindly suggest me the setting to use a datacard at a time on both laptops.
