  1. Trying to network share my laptop though Ethernet cable onto Xbox one. When ticking the box 'allow other network users to connect through this computers internet connection' I get an error message saying 'the specified service does not exist as a installed service'. How can I rectify this to allow me to share my internet connection. Thanks Jamie.

    Likely you've misunderstood Sharing. Clicking on
    'allow other network users to connect through this computers internet connection'​
    is intended for this kind of setup:

    Router ----> Pc ----------> other system

    and I'm sure you really want

    Code:
    Router ----> Pc
       |
       + --------------------> Xbox

    Plug the wires as show and the Xbox should be good to go :)
