Hi,

Could someone suggest the simplest way to share a dial-up internet
connection (NOT broadband), between two PCs - one running WinXP Pro and the
other running Win98 or Win2000?

Thanks

Do you expect both to be online at the same time? D.

Make the XP machine the master, create the dial up connect
on the XP machine. Connect the two computers with an
Ethernet network (cross-over cable, hub or switch/router-std
cable). The XP network wizard will explain it all. It
requires both computers to be on for the slave to connect.
It will seem slow.
