Perform the following actions on EACH connection icon, including all Local Area Connections and all dialup connections, in this window:
Right click on the connection's icon and select Properties.

Select the Advanced tab.
If there is a checked box for Internet Connection Sharing, uncheck it.
Click OK.


Close the Network Connections window.
