Windows 7: access remote computer's internet using putty

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
access remote computer's internet using putty

I've college internet with 20MB per download limit which I feel is very low..On the same network, there are lab computers with unlimited d/l limit(obviously some firewall will prevent access).I want to access lab's internet using SSH tunneling so my PC has unlimited d/l coz i've heard many people have done it in our clg.Also there is something called "squid" on our college's network which prevents access to most sites.Please tell me the steps.

I don't think so you can use SSH to share internet connection.....
maybe they are using it as Proxy to overcome any firewall....

Here is tutorial by mushroomHEADBANGERS on how to use it on windows....(Its far more easier on linux)
Part 1 : Bypass ANY Firewall/Hide Traffic - SSH (Part 1 of 2) - YouTube
Part 2 : Bypass ANY Firewall/Hide Traffic - SSH (Part 2 of 2) - YouTube

And (squid/2.7.STABLE9)is a proxy (squid : Optimising Web Delivery) not firewall...
