Check the IP settings on your laptop - are they set to obtain an IP address automatically?

Need more info.  What is your setup?  How are you trying to share the connection? What have you tried so far?

Hi again Jester2k84,
You asked if the internet ip address should be configured automaticlly by windows, By setting this option, your IE won't recognize that you are connected, so it'll be better to add your IP address and DNS If you have, depends on type of connection you have.
