I have recently had to re-install my usb-usb network adapter to both my desk top and laptop, however i am having some difficulty with it, in the previous installation an icon was displayed on both machines in the network connections as a bridge adapter, this allowed me to access the internet from my laptop through my desktop, however since re-installing this i no longer have this icon displayed and can therefore not set my DNS configuration.  The adapter is working and i can access both machines, but not the internet.  my desk top is on broadband so constantly connected.  I have recently installed microsoft net an xpservice pack 2 would this cause any problems.

many thanks

Yes,  It can cause problems with networks.  This is partly due to the firewalls that it has in place now.

Go to the security center and disable the firewalls and ensure that all firewalls are disabled (on both machines) once this has been done see if you can connect to the internet through the laptop.  

If you can, start bringing the firewalls back online until you can isolate which one is the problem. and then reconfigure it to allow you to access the internet

Hope this helps
