Help getting VNC to work on LAN with Netgear router

I have a Netgear wireless router (WGR614) with two machines hooked to it. One
hardwired with WinXPHome (with modem) and another wireless (laptop, w/ NetGear
WG111)). I also only have a dialup connection, so am not using the WAN
Broadband port of the router. I have Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) working
between the two and can fileshare. Everything in that regard is cool.
In order to get this to work, I'm using ICS and have DHCP on the router turned
off and the router IP set to 192.168.0.254...out of the range of ICS automatic
Now I want to use VNC so that I can see the modem computer from the wireless
laptop. The modem computer has an IP of 192.168.0.1 and currently the laptop
is 192.168.0.212. The VNC Service is running on the modem computer. When I try
to run the VNC client on the laptop, it takes about 20 seconds or so and
reports back "Error connection timed out (10060)" or something close to that.
I searched the archives on this list and could only find similiar questions
but concerning access from the internet WAN. Doesn't seem like anyone is
having any trouble like me...? I read about port forwarding, but don't know if
that applies to me, or how to really set that up. I would appreciate any help
you all could provide.
