I can't test your configuration. The port of my switch will be shut down if
I enable the connection sharing (port security). But I can offer you some
English descriptions for your Wiki entry. 

- Systemsteuerung = Control Panel
- Netzwerkverbindungen = Network Connections
- the network adaptors are in EN Windows are normally called "Local Area
- Eigenschaften = Properties
- Erweitert = Advanced
- Gemeinsame Nutzung der Internetverbindung = Internet Connection Sharing
- Anderen Benutzern im Netzwerk gestatten, die Internetverbindung dieses
Computers zu verwenden = Allow other network users to connect through this
computer's Internet connection

So you may update the Wiki section with a proper translation :)
