Internet connection through LAN!

  WrathMaster 17:27 05 Jun 2003

OK, here's my setup:
I have 1 PC running Broadband and 1 PC that has no Internet connection.
I have a Network Card installed on both machines and a Cable running between them that is working fine.
I would like to access the internet on both computers using the LAN connection.
The problem is I am having trouble setting up the LAN connection so I can access the internet through it.
I get this error message usually:
"Windows cannot set up this computer to share it's internet connection because the IP address it needs ( is being used by another computer or device on the network or by software running on this computer"
Whatever shall I do?????

Start - Settings - Control Panel - Network Connections. Right Click on Local Area Connection
then click Internet Connection (TCP/IP) - Properties, and you'll see all the settings.

Cross check on the two systems, and change one of the IPs to be one more on the last digit than the other.
