Hi, i now i could find some articles on the net about how to set up home network but i tought i could come here to usk for advise. maybe somebody already done it before.

so here is the thing: i have a desktop comp runing winXP and old laptop runing win98SE. the desktop comp is conected to the internet via cable modem. what i want is conect the laptop to the desktop comp to share internet conection. i prefere wireless connection but i dont mind to use ethernet cable cos i have the ethernet conectors on both comps.

could anyone tell me the easyest way how to conect tham and the cheapest option is the best one for me.

i was a litle bit worryed about two diferent OS.
