Wireless internet sharing btwn Vista - OSX

I am trying to set up internet sharing between a vista pc and my MBP. The PC is connected by ethernet to the internet and that is fully functioning. I have gone through (in Vista) start > connect to> set up a connection or network > network name and WEP password > share internet connection and the network appears. However when I try to connect to it with my MBP, airport says that it is not a network but a device. My iPhone can connect but I have no internet connection. Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks a bunch.

Internet sharing on a Mac is three clicks and you're set to go...

Macbook Pro 13" 2.26GHZ
iPhone 4 32GB
iPod Touch 32GB

There is probably a firewall or some other small setting you are overlocking. I don't have vista but in XP there was a wizard you could go through and that worked most of the time for me. You might find it's just not worth the headache and just go buy yourself a cheap wireless router.
