Well, the Windows 7 computer has to have two network cards.. Combination of 2 Wifi, 2 NIC or 1 NIC - 1 Wifi

One of the NIC card has to receive the internet source.

Then you can use this website to set up something called ICS (Internet Connection Sharing)

What type of internet service do you have? If possible, your best bet is to just get a router.

BSOD playing Wizardry Online and Ragnarok Online 2
Unsure what is causing these but has happened 4+ times on wizardry and once on Ragnarok, most other games don't seem to cause any problems. I've attached the files I received from the SF Diagnostic Tool as a zip. Can anyone help me?

Online backups?
I'm trying to backup my new computer for the first time... Ive heard of doing it online as opposed to on your computer. I do not have an external hard drive, so this seemed like a viable option instead of taking up a bunch of memory doing it on the computer itself. Does anyone have any information?

Who is online
I checked the "who is online" for the first time. The amazing result was 330 pages of people currently on-line - of which there were less than 9 pages of regulars and 321 pages of Guests. Amazing !!
