Share internet in windows 8.1

I have usb data card for internet.
On my Windows 7 laptop, I used to share the internet with my Ethernet connection from this usb data card and it was working great.

When I am doing the same on windows 8.1 then I am not able to access the internet on my other devices.

Not what I am doing wrong here

Check if at least your computer allows file access to shared files. Do a test.
If it fails check whether you are in private or public network.
You may change that if you right-click on the network bars in the taskbar then click on "Open Network and Sharing Center" (not sure of the exact name because I have a french Windows) then click on the icon beside your workgroup name.

No, I mean, does the manufacturer explicitly say it should work on 8.1?

Hard to tell from here. I think you should try on another clean win8.1 machine and if that doesn't work, contact the manufacturer's support.
