Sharing Internet connection

I have made a new user rofile for my brother on Windows XP, but instead of using my NTL Cable Broadband connection, it brings u a screen to register with BT Dial U, how do I make it so that he has the same connection?

maybe bypass it by going to the control panel
then network connections
the creating a shortcut to your DSL connection

also in the control panel
internet options
check out the home page
some times it set to a windows files
and that brings up connection wiz's
change it to click here or whatever

or delete any bt icons

I have already tried the shortcut, but that doesnt work, and deleting BT icons wont work because they are only shortcuts.

When I am in the new user profile and i go to set up new internet connection i cant select my cable modem.

thier is not option for a cable modem
choose the lan or local area connection

Sharing PC connections on NTL cable modem
click here
Note that all the items shown in the left hand panel take you to other links. The easiest way is to use a broadband 4 port router with switch connected to your cable modem with ethernet connection leads
from the router to both your PC and your brothers PC. This will allow independent internet working. A router such as the Linksys BEFSR41 or similar would be suitable click here

In the control panel control panel click Network and Internet Conections.

Click Internet options/connection.
Delete the BT connetion from the dial up section
In the LAN section choose Automaticlay detect settings. See if that works.

Also in the Network and Internet Conections check that in the Network section make sure that the Loacal Area Conection (LAN) is enabled.

I may have confused a few people, the other user profile is on the same PC, not another one.

Does the second user profile have full administrator rights?

In the network section of the user have a look in the Network and Internet Connection section.

Click Internet options/connection. Then delete the BT dial-up, Then try running the internet set-up from there.
