Cannot get Win 8.1 To share Dialup Connection VIA LAN

Hello There,

I have been using windows since forever on my Computers.
For years I have been using Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit on My Main PC and Secondary PC.

Normally I would create a Homegroup on the Main, And get the Secondary to join.
I'd then Share my Dialup Connection, And the Secondary PC has internet too, To play MMOs, Download, and anything else.
All by just using my LAN Cable to connect the two.

But this doesn't work on Windows 8.1 Pro

I have seen LOTS and LOTS of step by step "Solutions" Which I have followed to the letter but couldn't achieve anything at all.

Can anybody please help me solve this problem so I can have internet on both of my PCs again?
And can Windows 7 Ultimate share Internet to Win 8.1 Pro still? Or is it Win 8.1 Pro too broken to even be shared to?

Please help me it is urgent and I've wasted 2 days trying to solve this, I have a killer flu and I need to fix this before Monday :(

Kind Regards

Indian Help Line..lol

Well I know I can say this, I have two computers, Not laptops, So that complicates it even more I suppose,
And I am trying to get connected through the Ethernet (LAN) (Not WiFi)
Unless I buy 2 WiFi Dongles I don't think this will work.

I explained how I normally connect using just the LAN Cable between the two pcs.
Maybe you have another Indian Helpline Video please? lol :'D
