Windows 8 Actually Sucks.

    Just had a look at the ICS service, and it says 'stopping' and also doesn't give me an option to restart the service. Perhaps we have stumbled across the problem, although I am sure I have done this before .....

    Are you sure you were looking at Virtual Router Plus?: Virtual Wifi Hotspot for Windows 7 & 8 - Home

    This is 100% free, and published under MS Public License. You would not have to buy anything to share your dongles internet with it.

    pparks1: I do know of some other ways to share the connection either virtual router plus or purchasing a router. I have considered purchasing a router, but I would first need to find the correct router which would be able to cater to my needs. I have also tried using virtual router plus, which can be used to share my dongles internet to wirelessly connect my Xbox up. What annoys me is that you could do this on windows 7 without using a program.

    However,

    goodintentions: I have tried using virtual router plus, and at first it seemed great and was working perfectly. But then i discovered i would have to purchase an additional version of virtual router to be able to share my dongles internet. If it was free it would be fine, but i don't want to purchase something that may not work correctly.

    So does anyone have any other suggestions? or could anyone point me into the right direction to purchasing the correct router required for my needs ?
    Try connec8. I wasn't going to suggest it because it's still technically in beta. But it works good enough.

    Tried Virtual Router Plus again and I keep getting the error message 'Virtual router could not be started. Supported hardware may not have been found.'

    You may have other problems then... DO this test: 1) Check if your Firewall is started 2) Try to share a drive or folder.

    If you can't then your OS is seriously compromised.
