I have got wireless network (2 PC running XP Home sp2) using router/AP. One
PC is connected to the Internet directly via DSL ethernet modem
(non-wireless). How do I go about sharing this modem so that other PC can
connect to the WEB. File and Printer sharing is working fine on the network.

Thank you,

1. Disconnect the DSL modem from the PC.

2. Connect the DSL modem to the WAN (Internet) port of the router/AP.

3. Connect the PC to a LAN port of the router/AP.

4. Using the PC, connect to the built-in web server of the router/AP
and configure it to access your DSL connection. For example, if your
DSL connection uses PPPoE, configure it with your login user name and
password. The user manual for your router/AP should have details.

Do I still have to have wireless adaptor connected to PC that has router/dsl
attached?

You're welcome, Sergio. I don't know the details of your current
setup, so I'm having to guess a bit here.

If I understand your question, you currently have an Ad-hoc wireless
network between the two computers, and the first PC has both a wired
and a wireless connection.

If that's right, the first PC won't need a wireless connection any
more, because the second PC will communicate wirelessly with the
router/AP. Configure the second PC's wireless connection in
Infrastructure mode.

If that's not right, please reply to my message in the news group with
a complete description of how your current network is set up, and give
the make and model number of your modem/router.

Both PCs access wireless router in Infrastructure mode. DSL modem is
connected to one PC via ethernet cable. I did understand your answer but
still don't know if I need to keep wireless connection to the router from the
PC
(after your point 3 is completed).
In other words, if I understud you correctly, after I follow your
instruction one PC will be connected wirelessly to the router and other using
ethernet cable. Is that right?

Hi
Yes you do it connects the PC to the Router.

Yes, that's right.

After following point 3, the first PC will connect to the router using
a wired connection, so that PC won't need a wireless connection. The
second PC will connect to the router using a wireless connection.

Of course, once you have the router properly configured using the PC
connected to it with the ethernet cable, you can disconnect the cable
and use connect that PC wirelessly as well. You only need to have a
wired connection to the router in order to configure it (at least this
arrangement is strongly recommended).
