If you have a local area network inside. All you need to share files. Find the other side of the IP can be. For example: / / 192.168.0.1 so to be able to jump out of a password. On the note in order to succeed.

Sounds like the Desktop has a problem withe the adapter.
If you have an icon by the clock, right click on it and go to network connections or sharing center to view you adapter setting.
If you get this far get back with me.
i think a statc IP address has been entered by malware.
you have the internet on desktop pc and you want to connect your laptop right?
open control panel select network set up wizzard and follow instructions for shared network.
if you connect dsl to notebook you need to have installed modem device drivers and configured device and done basically everything you had to do on pc,by disconnecting dsl from pc obviosly youre gonna lose the internet.
get your self a wireless router if not already have one , that way you set up pc wired and link laptop via wireless
Okay so if I understand your question....your desktop has DSL and you want to connect your laptop to the same DSL connection? If that is the case then what you need is a router. A router will share the DSL connection between the desktop and the laptop. A wireless router will allow your laptop to surf wirelessly if it has a wireless adapter or you can plug it into the ethernet port on the laptop. You can purchase one here. The instructions are pretty simple and straightforward and should be included with the router.
The message for an unplugged network cable, means you have enabled wired network, but the cable isn't there. No problem if you are connected wireless. To be able to access files on computers over your network, you need to enable filesharing for the desired directories or disks. Right-click the directory or disk, go to sharing and set the correct settings. Maybe you have to allow for network sharing the first time.
I assume you have a crossover ethernet cable. put the my network places on your desktop. right click on desktop/properties/desktop/customize desktop/tic then on the network places icon on desktop right click/properties right click on wireless and bridge devices they are now sharing the same ip be sure and remove /delete bridge when not sharing as the ip will stick forever likely. that should do it if you need more info /open my computer and hit help and search for internet connection sharing as the firewall may need to be configured.
