Wireless network shared broadband connect

  User-A1BEEF52-1D14-4722-9F30D7B6199F7FBF 14:10 13 May 2003

I have successfully set up and Ad hoc wireless network between 2 computers and can share files and printers. I can't work out how to share my AOL broadband internet connection on the 2nd computer. I tried going into the C drive of the main computer from 2nd computer and launched AOL. It tried to set up my connection via "TCP/IP LAN or ISP" but then told me my windows networking was not set up properly.
When setting up network I managed to share printers by selecting Start, Settings, Printers and right clicking on the printer and selecting Sharing - should I somehow do the same for my ADSL modem?

Which O.S are you running?

If it is XP then you need to run the network setup wizard which will do everything for you.



Thanks for your reply. Windows 98 second edition.

It is for a wired network but should work for wireless also (with some obvious exceptions) in so far as explaining about setting Windows up for networking.
