hi all,
well i have my friends pc connected to the internet via a modem/router. i wish to connect my laptop to the internet via his modem/router but the isp in cyprus will not allow it (very complicated story the way the cyprus company sets up internet access)
so how would i connect my laptop to his computer creating a network.
we both use win xp home
we have the modem/router and the cables

so please walk me through how to do it

i would be grateful bear in mind i have little experince in doing this

Does your laptop have a Lan connection (network) if it does just connect it to the router via this port and a spare port on the router then go into internet options in control panel and click to connect via a Lan and then open your browser. if you wish to connect to each other run network wizard on both machines.
