Ok, I have an old laptop with no ethernet port, the expansion card slot has been removed(broken), single usb port broken. Wireless is no longer an option, but i have rigged up a phone cord (slightly modified, green to red and red to green, as to allow the connection) and connected through hyperterminal (AT commands) between itself and my desktop. This works for file sharing to a point, but I'm curious about internet connection sharing. Are there any solutions to share internet in this way? Are there programs that are better for the job? Did I miss an easier way to connect using my modems?
