Although this will work, or should do, by far the easiest and most efficient way to share an internet connection is by using a Router. A wireless one in your case.
If you are sure you followed all the steps in the Hep topic on this subject, try making your wireless network open by removing the password requirement.
This will allow you to see if you have any other settings that are not quite correct without the added problem of WEP configuration.
Once you have achieved your aim, turn on the WEP again
Let us know how you get on
