    Sharing connection to wired PC from wireless

    So right now I'm trying share the internet connection from my friends computer to mine, which as usual, isn't working.

    His computer gets internet access wirelessly through a USB adapter. I currently have my computer connected through the wired LAN port to try and access the connection, but sharing the internet in the wired LAN settings just kills the connection to the wireless computer, and sharing the connection from the wireless access (which I wouldn't expect to work anyway, since the other machine isn't connected wirelessly) just gives an IP conflict.

    Suggestions?
