You need 2 network devices in your computer that is going to act as a DHCP server. First connection will be your Internet (WAN) connection, second connection will be your local LAN connection.

Start by opening the "Network and Sharing Center" in the Control Panel. This should show you at least 2 networks. One of these MUST be connected to the Internet.

Click on the link next to "Connections:" for the Internet connected device.
Click on Properties button.
Click on Sharing tab.
Check "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection"
Select your other network connection in the drop down list below.
Hit OK button, sit back and wait for a few minutes. You may be prompted to reboot.
