Windows 7: Sharing internet between XP and 7

07 Sep 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium
Sharing internet between XP and 7

Hello! I recently bought a desktop with Windows 7 Home Premium and unfortunately the wireless card I purchased to go with it was lost somewhere in the process. What I do have, though, is a netbook running Windows XP that has a functional wireless card along with an ethernet cable to bridge the two computers. I'm under the impression that I could set up a network allowing me to access the internet on my desktop by utilizing my netbook's connection, but I haven't got a clue how to go about it, especially since I only barely know my way around Windows 7.

What are my options?
