I have 2 computers wireless connected ad hoc sharing a printer. Does anyone know if it's possible to share a broadband connection without using another device? I can't find any information on this.

just enable "Internet Connection Sharing" on the PC which connect to Broadband.

You can find out how to do it by searching "Internet Connection Sharing" in Windows' own build-in help.

Further to my thanks. I originally installed my D Link wireless card in the host computer using the disc supplied to configure it. The result of this was to remove the option “Allow other network users to connect through this computers Internet connection” Reconfiguring using XP solved the problem. Host is a Mesh, Athlon 2400 – Laptop is a Compaq Presario Athlon64 3000+
