Hi I have windows vista installed on a new PC but at the moment ythere are no drivers for my globespan usb adsl modem I have the modem installed and working on an older computer using win2000 pro.. Ive just purchased a crossed network cable to connect them together and wanted to know if i can access the internet to update vista via the network connection .. I have no real experience of home networks but have so far granted access to the hardrive of the vista pc but seem to have problems seeing the c drive of the win2000 pro pc as it just shows me limited folders. The first question is can i coonect to the internet piggy backing of the other machine and if so does anybody have any tech threads to help me ..
Check that link. The feature you are looking at is ICS (Internet Connection Sharing). It´s quite easy actually and your idea is sound and should work. If the link i posted doesn´t provide what you need or is too complicated do a google Search for "ICS Windows 2000" and you will find plenty of tutorials.
