Its actually easier, just buy a NIC card.geomax said:I'm not up on XP, but I imagine you could use a 10/100 ethernet switch, and enable Internet Connection Sharing.
If he's running NT4 or 2000 Server, this will work, but this setup limits him to just the laptop. A router or switch allows for more expansion, and will work with many operation systems without added software.dredmo said:

So your tributary computer will have one nic card, give it an IP address and a gateway
your main computer, install two NIC cards, one on the DSL or whatever, and the second, give it a gateway the same as your other comp, and a ip address one number off. You can use the main computer as the router. There is software you will need I think, but someone else can help me out on this please.. I havent done it in a LONG time, but I know it works
Actually that way is cheaper, not easier. Router is the easiest way.
You have two choices, you can either have your pc act as a router or you can buy one.RO 330i said:
