Sharing internet access in windows xp

Can someone help please?
My new computer has windows xp and I've set it up with two users. I have internet access through my profile - how do I get the second user to share the same internet access? The icon only appears on my desktop.

Start->Connect to...->Modem name

Now just type in your username and password (e.g. the username could be [email protected] or [email protected] etc.... and the password for that account)

Hope that helps.

Have a look in C:\Documents and Settings\Your User Name\Start Menu\Programs\Startup.

You should have a shortcut in there to your modem.

Move that shortcut to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup.

Hi Jackcoms
Possibly. I can now connect on second profile, but there are no icons on desk top for isp. Have to click start/connect to/isp modem which connects to broadband. Then go back to desk top and click IE icon. It works - I'm ok with it, but longwinded for second user who is not particularly comfortable around pc's.
Thanks for your help anyway.
