First post here.
I have two win XP machines.
One is a laptop that I use wifi to connect to the web with,
one is a desktop that has no wifi, but does have an ethernet port,
I would like to use the laptop to serve the desktop, where I can surf
on the desktop through the laptop, with an ethernet
cable between them. What do I have to do to do this?
I know this is an old topic and old oses, someone stole my new laptops
out of my apt recently and I'm desperate. I always liked XP tho...
Any help greatly app'd.
Thanks a lot
yeah i have a wifi card but there's no pc card slot on desktop.
It's not my router, but my neighbor's. I was hoping to go the
ethernet cable route. I guess I'll get a pc card/usb adapter.
You can share out the connection on the laptop with a cable, then then the laptop will always have to be on to use the desktop, and the cable will have to be run to both of them. A $10-20 desktop WiFi card will fix it all.
