OK, i know tittle is a little vague so i'll explain.
I got a new desktop PC and i have no UTP cable in my room. To avoid trouble of pulling the cable across whole apartment i decided to share my Laptops Wi-Fi via UTP cable using it's ethernet port...

So far it is working like charm. No dropped connections. However, as my laptop gets 1 IP via router, it dedicates my desktop PC another one (i guess it has a dhcp service running of some kind) and that IP is a bit weird.
I would expect it to be something like: 192.168.1.5 (my laptop is 192.168.1.4, Android phone has 192.168.1.3 etc....). But instead of that standard LAN IP my desktop has: 192.168.137.251
I've never seen IP like that before.
Here's my problem: I wanted to connect my 2 Windows (win 7&8) PC's (laptop and desktop) to a HomeGroup so i can share hard drives. I've done this before but with this IP i have trouble. Both PC's are in the same homegroup and have advanced network sharing turned on....
I see other computer under connections but when i want to connect my credentials are denied(see attached SS).
i figured i first try to ping one and another but there was no success (request timed out). It is then i realised it has something to do with that strange IP.
Do you have any idea how to fix that?
Or do you maybe have an alternative software to share hard drives inside LAN? I don't care about WAN access, i just want to have access across my 2 computers...
