I believe you are trying to do Internet Connection Sharing, and it is possible in Windows.

To connect the two systems, you'd need a crossover cable, not a standard network cable. Once you do that, you can set up ICS

See if this link helps

Sorry that I didn't get back to you until now. I use CablesForLess, since it's so cheap (and quality).

Here's a link to a 14ft cable. If you need longer, they more than likely make it, but you could always use a couple to connect the crossover (which reversed the pins) to a regular ethernet cable (straight-through)

Crossover - http://www.cablesforless.com/p-608-14-foot-350mhz-cat5e...

Coupler - http://www.cablesforless.com/p-147-rj45-8-conductor-8p8...

Hope that helps.
