Connecting my laptop to the internet via my PC

  marco55 13:17 20 Apr 2008

Hi, I very stupidly bought a Belkin Router and not a Belkin Modem Router and threw away the box, so I can't take it back. I can connect to the internet via my BT ADSL modem on my PC, so is there a way of connecting this wireless router to my PC then set up a wireless network between my PC and my laptop so that I can get broadband access to the web via my PC? I would hugely appreciate the help. Many thanks. Mark.
Alternatively, if I get my sky netgear router/modem working as per my other thread, that will work instead! Thanks

Hi Woodchip, no, the only two holes in the adsl modem are for the phone line in and a usb line out. There are no other holes in the modem.

Does the router have a USB out connection? This may work with the above, you would need to check the kind of in out ports on both click here
