CONNECTING TO INTERNET

For some time I have had a peer-to-peer connection between my PC and laptop. I have recently gone onto broadband via a USB modem on the PC. I would like to be able to access the Internet from the laptop. I have run "Internet Connection Wizard" on both computers. I do not know what to run on the laptop to access the Internet now. This may be a stupid question but can anyone help, please?

Just double click on internet explorer on the laptop.

On desktop
Settings -network settings - local area connection advance tab - Both boxes under internet connectio sharing should be ticked.

When I did this I received the following message -
Internet connection cannot be enabled. A LAN connection is already configured with the IP address that is required for automatic IP addressing.
What should I do now?

I have managed to work this out and can now connect OK.

Maybe you could tell us what you did so we all can learn thank you

In my Network Connections there was a "Locl Area Connection" that was enabled. I disabled this, reran the Internet Connection Wizard and then did what Fruit Bat suggested. Eureka!!
