    Hi -Computer with internet - if your using Winxp os go the My network places - view network connection right click on Local area connection and click properties go to the advanced tab and check the first box Allow other user ..... it will automatically change ip address - put this ip address in your other pc as your gateway - The internet start working - its so simple ???
