I have tried to share my laptop Internet conection to a PC by configuring the Eth0 connection of my laptop with "Share with others" selected. The Eth0 connection of the PC is DHCP Automatic. It keeps connecting and disconnecting every 2 or 3 seconds. Am I doing something wrong?

Both computers are running Ubuntu.

Googling around found this issue is caused by a bug. The bug was fixed supposedly downloaded and installed in my system with update manager but I was having the issue even when Ubuntu 11.10 is up to date. So, I went to connection manager/etho config/IPV6 an set it up to IGNORE. Restart my laptop and problem solved. –  Bruno Pablo Nov 4 '11 at 1:02

@Bruno That is actually a comment, not an answer. What I meant was going down to the box below marked "Your Answer", entering it there, and clicking the "Post Your Answer" button. After the answer is posted, click the checkmark icon to the left of it to mark it as accepted. If you have additional questions, please see the FAQ. –  WarriorIng64 Nov 4 '11 at 1:08
