Windows vista ics lan wi-fi sharing

Hello,
I just installed windows vista from XP. I was running ICS and ad-hoc to share connection on windows XP. Can anyone help me with sharing my WIFI with ICS over a wireless router?

All suggestions are welcome.

Temporary disable the firewall and follow the same steps given in the post by Milton.J. When the ICS is in place re-enable and the firewall will accept the new connection. You will need to enable Internet Connection Sharing to allow the laptop to work through the PC to get access to the internet. If you are using wireless router, you cannot use ICS when there exists another DHCP server on the same subnet.
