Are you trying to share your internet connection from router to computer from that computer to the other one?

IMHO: Quick note bad idea. This always seems to create more problems than it is worth. If you have wireless just add a wireless card to the second computer you will be much happier because it will work better and super simple to setup.

If you donít have wireless add a hard wire for the second computer to the router to the internet. -WS
