Linksys WRT54G and Fixed Wireless. How do I set it up??

  1. First of all, my computer stats:
    Main computer:
    WinXP SP2
    Fixed wireless connection (My internet runs directly to my computer from the antenna on the roof and hooks up to a pci card in my computer, not with a rj45 plug, but a screw on connector)
    pci ethernet card, built on to motherboard, connected to the WRT54g wireless router.
    Firmware for the router has been updated.


    Second computer:
    WinXP SP2
    Wireless pc card

    I can't for the life of me figure out how to get the second computer to connect to the internet through the first computer. I want to share files and the internet. I have searched for days to no avail!!

    Can someone help??

    Sorry, I should have mentioned that the Linksys WRT54g router is a wireless router.

    If you have a wireless card in your pc you should be able to do a search of available networks and connect to it.
