Wireless network configuration.

Am having a nightmare, anyone help?

1. My computer, Golgotha, connects to the internet via a Broadband USB modem. This connection works, Golgotha is online fine.

2. Wanting to set up a wireless network for our Laptop, I have plugged in a Netgear wireless router via Cat5. The Laptop can connect to the network ok, but, I cannot get Internet Sharing to work.

What IP settings does the laptop need? Connecting to the router via DHCP doesn't seem to work; but if I set it up manually what DNS & Gateway does it need?
(1) LAN address of my PC
(2) LAN address of the Netgear wireless router?

It doesn't help that the router is in German, although thankfully geeky acronyms seem to be the same in every language!
