How to enable wireless ad-hoc network with Internet sharing when the option button "Turn on Internet connection sharing" went missing

As many of us know, we can share our Internet connection by setting up a wireless ad-hoc network, regardless with Windows Vista or Windows 7. Somehow, at times, we're unable to share the Internet connection, just because the recommended option to "Turn on Internet connection sharing" is missing. Anyhow, it's just the matter of minor settings.

When the option button "Turn on Internet connection sharing" went missing, just apply these simple steps, I implanted these steps for Windows 7:
  1. Open Network and Sharing Center via Control Panel/Taskbar.
  2. On your top left, go to "Change adapter settings".
  3. Look for any connection which was set as default connection (with a green tick icon), right click on it and click "Cancel as Default Connection".
  4. Now, right click again on that connection and hit "Properties", then go to the "Sharing" tab.
  5. Lastly, uncheck "Allow other network users to connect through this computer's Internet connection" and click "OK".
Now, try to create your wireless ad-hoc network, the option button "Turn on Internet connection sharing" should reappear, as shown in image below. If it doesn't reappear, try to re-create your wireless ad-hoc network again, it should work perfectly. Cheers ;)
