I have just purchased a new pc with onboard LAN. I have an old pc which I used for BT broadband. I decided to connect both of them up to use ICS, so I purchased a PCI ethernet card for the old PC, as well as CAT5 cable. I decided to link up the PC's directly instead of spending on a switch etc.
Anyways, I have linked up the network and everything works e.g. file sharing, printer sharing etc. However, the client Pc cannot surf the internet. I know I'm going wrong somewhere in my configuration, since the broadband connection shows up. It's just that the PC cannot surf the web, sign into msn messenger etc.
I'd be really appreciative of any help, as I am a newbie to networks.
