Go into your WLAN settings and make sure you see you Router, if not do a search for it, or manually set it up. Also make sure tha the wireless NIC you are using is compatible, ie, Your Router is a 802.11G router and you are using a 802.11B or 802.11G NIC. Also make sure you have the NIC on same channel as router, default usually is 6. If you have setup and enbled WEP make sure your key is the same in the card as it is in the router. Be sure you are in 'infrastructure mode' and not AD HOC. Make sure you are within the distance that the router specifies, and also if there are any walls or other obstructions between you that can hinder even block transmission like metal or stone, even regualr wall will hinder distance a little. I have had to manually put my Router in to search for it after having manually changed the name of my WLAN from the default to my own specific label. Try reruning the connection wizard that came with your hardware...Outside of this, call manufacturer's tech support. Good luck!

Can you call up the routers admin page on all PC's? -Make sure if assigning static IP's that they are all within the range of the router's address. -Disable security until all are connected OK. -If using MAC filtering, are all entries correct?
Don't try to use ICS on the 'host computer'. You don't need it. Let each PC handle its own internet connection.
Can you see all PC's in network neighborhood?
-Ensure all are in same workgroup, unique computer names.

My concern is that you say your "host PC is connected to the cable modem." Your host PC should be connected (hard wired) to the router. The ROUTER should be the only connection to the cable modem. Hook up the cable modem cat5 cable to the WAN or WLAN side of the router... hardwire the PC...(why do you call it "host"????) to any one of the LAN ports on the router...reboot everything and you should get an IP address. Check IPCONFIG on each machine to see that it is connected and has a working IP address.

check the ssid and the key. delete the ssid's from the client machines, change the key and the ssid on the router and then set those changed settings at the client side.
