My wireless router broke last night and I have been trying to set up my PC as a router. I'm running Windows 7 (build 7600) at the moment, but every time I enable Internet Connection Sharing on my wireless adapter, I lose the Internet on my PC. Is there a way of having ICS enabled but still being able to use the Internet on the router PC?

Set up ICS yourself manually by using static IP's on each PC. Remember to disable the ICS you are trying to use now before doing this.

E.G

Router PC
Internet:
xx.xx.xx.xx

Eth0:
IP: 192.168.1.100
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.1.100

Your PC
Eth0:
IP: 192.168.1.101
Subnet: 255.255.255.0
Gateway: 192.168.1.100

Pretty sure that should work. All ICS does is set this up for you but doing it manually is far more reliable.

you must enable ICS on interface that is connected to internet (but i guess you know that :) )

Andy's way should work, but dont set gateway on router pc eth0 interface. You'll get one from internet interface (and multiple default gateways in windows may behave unexpectedly)
Winroute is great sw, but its pretty hard to configuration.
if you need just web, and ICS doesnt work, you can use something like winproxy .

I don't think so, he said that he enabled it on his wireless interface.

You need to enable ICS on your Ethernet interface if you're trying to make it a wireless router. ICS is ridiculously easy to configure in Windows 7, just read the dialog boxes instead of just clicking quickly through them.

Settings of XP, vista and 7 are "too much different".
