With a router, neither computer is host or client. Both are equal and
neither need be on for the other to access the Internet.
On the XP machine run the XP windows networking wizard and follow the
bouncing ball. It sets up quite easily. It will offer you the choice to
create a set-up on a memory stick to use on the other machine. As it is Me,
I suggest you follow the directions.
Ensure that each machine has a distinctive name (different than your logon
names) and that both machines use the EXACT same workgroup name.
Should be easy.
