    Internet sharing

    I have two pc (win98 and xp)
    So how can i allow the both to share internet connection (xp is the one connecting using its modem)

    I'm already in the process, (both can share files)
    there is a connecton icon in win98, and it allows it to disconnect and connect at anytime to internet by commanding the xp's modem to connect

    but after the connection, i cannot surf the internet while the xp can.
    So what shall i do?

    Have you set it to share the connection under the Advanced Settings of the Properties of the connection under Network Connections?

    Is the browser set not to dial a connection and instead use the LAN connection?

    Check ur WIN98's ip. Did u set it to pick an IP address automatically? If yes, check to make sure it's picked an IP in the 192.168.0.xxx range. If not, you can troubleshoot from there.
