i am using a xp home pc connected to broadband and i have networked that to a win98 laptop using a patch cable. the laptop has a wireless network card and so does my 2nd xp home laptop. firstly i am trying to use internet connection sharing so the 1st laptop can use the broadband but that wont work (any ideas?). Secondly i want to be able to get my xp home laptop on the internet sharing by connecting wirelessly to the win 98 laptop which is wired to my xp home pc with internet. do i need to bridge the two networks on the win 98 laptop or something. and lastly the win 98 laptop will only let me use the network card or the wireless network card at one time (i cant use them both at the same time) how do i get round this?

hope that makes sense
