Modem connections through LAN?

I have a LAN set up between my computer and my son's. There is a modem in mine, but not in his. Is there a way to set up the network so he can get onto the internet through my the LAN and my PC? We're both using Windows XP Pro.

  1. why don't use the ICS of your XP pro

    No matter how much you know today, you will have to know more tomorrow.

    I feel sorry for my bad English and I am in Hong Kong.
  2. I finally got around to going to the link about ICS, but I still can't get the darn thing to work. As far as I can tell, I'm following the instructions to the T, but his PC will not go online. Even if I log onto the net with my PC and then launch is browser it doesn't recognize the connection. In fact, I don't even think it recognizes it's still on the LAN.
  3. Is TCP/IP setup correctly?

    Tried pinging 127.0.0.1 with each, and ping each other etc.
