Hello. I have been trying to set up a shared internet connection between my PC (which has access to broadband via a USB modem) and my laptop, which has no internet access or software at all, IE6 apart. I already have file and printer sharing working fine between the two, but cannot get the internet sharing to work at all using the Network Setup wizard. (Both machines run XP Home). I tried turning off both firewalls temporarily, just in case I hadn't configured them correctly, but still no internet is available on the laptop.
I have browsed the net to find a solution but in vain. (Several people on various forums have concluded it will never work and have given up, which is not encouraging!).
I wonder if anyone here would be able to give me a step by step guide to how to set this up. The fact that I have file sharing working OK via the firewire cable seems to indicate I am half way there.
