In order to run Internet Connection Sharing, the computer must have at least two network adapters installed - one to connect to the internet and a second to connect to the "client" computers. In the adapter that is used to connect to the internet, tick the box "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection".

When you do this, the adapter with which you're connecting the Client computer will be given the IP address 192.168.0.1 by Windows. The Client computer will get its address automatically by DHCP from the Host computer and in the 192.168.0.0 subnet (IP address range). Because ICS uses this subnet, it is important that your router doesn't have the address 192.168.0.1 and allocate addresses in the range 192.168.0.2 to 192.168.0.254, otherwise there will be a conflict. The router's own address would have its third octet (number) changed from zero to 1 or 2 etc.
