    Right-click the Ethernet network connection with which the computer accesses the Internet and click "Properties."
    # 3

    Click on the "Advanced" tab of the "Properties" dialogue box. Click to mark the box next to "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection." Click the "OK" button to close the dialogue box. If a "Local Network" message box pops up with an explanation, click the "Yes" button to proceed.

    Right-click on your wireless connection in "Network Connections." If the connection is disabled, you need to enable it. Right-click again if necessary and choose "Properties" in the right-click menu.

    Better question What don't I own, Oh a generic APAD
    The problem is you are setting up your XP as a AhHoc (Peer to Peer) AP not a true AP. There are small apps which turn your PC WLAN NIC into a true AP. But there are several. So you will need to choose. Google on
    windows xp access point software and you will discover what I mean.
    Otherwise you need to change the Tablet WLAN Conf file which requires root privs . This is not hard and well described. This is because the tablet is set to ignore AdHoc APs due to the security risks.
