  1. Hey, I have a desktop pc (XP) and a laptop (7) and I am able to access my pc from my laptop. My question is, can I use the wireless internet on my laptop while on my pc (from my laptop)?

    All I need is a wireless card for my pc or the crossover e-net cable. But I'm am curious if this would work.

    Thanks

    two soultions
    1. and best, connect all systems to a router
    2. workable, chain the connections

    sample(1)
    Code:
    ISP...modem---router --- wifi or wired connections up to four systems
    sample(2)
    Code:
    ISP...modem---system#A --- use ICS --- system#B
    (2) is more complicated and requires systemA running if systemB is to get Internet connection.
    On systemA, enable the ICS feature
