Wireless, wired internet sharing

Microsoft Windows 7 ultimate 32-bit
December 20, 2009 at 09:45:19
Specs: Windows 7
I am currently running both PC and Laptop with Windows 7.
I have a wireless connection on my PC through a usb WiFi dongle.
I want to connect my old BT-Homehub through ethernet to my PC which already has the WiFi connection. I then want to share the internet connection through the router which is wireless enabled to my Laptop.

I have so far managed to connect both PC and Laptop through the router and share files, but as soon as i connect the router through ethernet to my PC and try to access the internet it directly takes me to the router configuration pages where it says 'no incoming broadband connection' and renders my WiFi connection useless as it seems to take over the internet access instead of using my usb WiFi dongle which works perfectly when only that is connected?

I really only want the BT router to be used as a gateway device to my PC which has the internet connection so i can share it with my laptop.

Access Point > USB WiFi Dongle > PC > Wired to BT-Homehub > Wirelessly to Laptop

All and any help will be much appreciated

Many thanks

What exactly does your wireless Access Point plug in to?
