well let see...
First you have a DSL modem, a Cable Modem... or a simple dial Up connection?
Second try connecting the device to your home PC, you can use internet from there?
If you connect your device to the Laptop you have internet on both machines?
Please try to explain yourself better and I will try to assist you.

This is probably because your XP machine has ICS enabled and your ME not.
If you want to configure a ICS on the ME machine you will need to disable it from the XP one.
Go to networking, properties from your dial up connection, in the sheet for ICS disable it.
If not you will have a conflict between ICS services.
To create a ICS on the ME machine you can use:
Simple Microsoft ICS solution (I really don't like this)
Use a Proxy software (isn't so easy but can be done!)
Use a routing software w/ NAT (like winroute... )
So check that out and tell me what do you want to do.
