  1. hilo! i know this is my first post but i need serious networking help.
    My dad installed the verizon dsl on his old acer comp using a westell modem router a90-750015-... I am trying to build a network so i can share the internet between my thinkpad, my sis laptop, and a compaq. I can access the connection through a wizard on my thinkpad, but it wont allow me to use any browsers or nething. And i am truly confused. All of the computers have windows xp. Is there anyway to access sites on my laptop? is it a firewall issue? i tried to run the networking wizard but i think i am doing something wrong. Please help me -.- !

    thank you!
