  1. I know XP has internet sharing.. ma'b 7 can still do this.
  2. This feature is built into windows 7 all you have to do is go to network and sharing centre, > manage network adapters right click on your internet connection (in your case i'm guessing it will be wired) and click properties, go to sharing and tick the box saying allow other users to connect through this computers internet connection.

    Hope this answers your question!

  3. It's easier to just go to that manage network adapters and highlight all of them, and then right click, bridge connections. This allows you to plug in the internet into any of the ports and it still just works instead of setting it up specifically for one device to be the master.
