Internet Connection Sharing tab missing
For my LAN 10/100 connection, it shows up -- but for my Intel WIFI 4965AGN card, the option to share the connection isn't there. The tab is missing.
Any ideas why?
I had the same problem and after much messing about if you got to status,properties,sharing on your LAN connection to your xbox and uncheck both boxes. Now when you go back to wireless connection status,properties the sharing tab should now appear check both boxes then advanced and tick all boxes hope this helps it worked for me. It will also fix any ip address problems you have.

Directions for Windows 7 and XP
"Settings in Windows have nothing to do with whether your phone can share a broadband connection via a wireless router."
You may have problems acceesing the phone in Windows if certain settings in Windows aren't set right, but as far as the phone being able to access the internet via the wireless router, Windows settings have nothing to do with that.
You probably need to install software for the phone in order to be able to access it in Windows in any case.
In Help and Support in XP, it says...
"To view the status of a shared Internet connection
Open Network Connections.
Right-click the icon for the shared Internet connection, and then click Status.
To open Network Connections, click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Network Connections.
If the Show icon in notification area when connected check box is selected for the shared Internet connection, you can click the icon for the shared Internet connection to open its status window.
If Windows Firewall is enabled, UPnP framework must be selected on the Exceptions tab in Windows Firewall for Internet Gateway Device Discovery and Control to work. "
In my case, in (XP) MCE 2005 (it's essentially the same as XP Pro) , there is no icon for the shared Internet connection - it's just Internet Connection.
I'm connecting to the internet via a combo wireless router / high speed modem, via a network cable to it.
The wireless broadcast is enabled in the combo wireless router / high speed modem's configuration.
I have had up to four computers connected to that router/modem, both via a wired connection and a wireless connection, although I haven't tried connecting wirelessly to a phone or an Xbox.
I've never had any problem with a wireless connection not working, once the device that wants to connect wirelessly has been supplied with the proper code or password that's the same as the one in the combo router / modems configuration settings.
My brother recently re-installed XP Pro, he has no wireless network adapter on his computer, and his son and his son-in-law had no problem getting their phones to access the internet via the standalone wireless router my brother's computer is connected to via a network cable, once the phones had been configured to use the proper code the wireless router is using.
My brother also has a laptop he uses mostly for his job that connects wirelesly to the same router, no problem.
