one should take presidence.
Would you be satisfied using hardware profiles to deterine your network options? (choose which at bootup)

also your setup is confusing.  I have a hard time figuring out exactly what is going on.  What is starband 360  
gateway wireless modem or wireless network adapter?

So you have a PC

It has a starband connection for internet (usb?)

then you have  a network card with a eithernet cable (big phone plug 8 pin RJ45) plugged into a wireless gateway brand AP/router (what is the gateway model#?)
you have a laptop connecting wirelessly to the gateway Access point (AP)


if this is correct, it sounds like you need to do one of the following.
- setup your PC with ICS.   is it windows XP or 2000?

-if your starbadn is eithernet enabled maybe you can put your gateway router inbetween it and your network???? is it actually a router?
