Giving PC(a)'s internet to PC(b)

Specs: Windows XP
Okay so I have 2 PCs in this room. One is using a Wireless N Adapter to connect to the router upstairs, and the other one currently has no internet. I tried connecting a CAT5 ethernet cable from PC(a) to PC(b), thinking that might give it internet. Nope. Tried connecting them with a router the cables, still no internet. How can I get internet on it w/o spending $50 for a wireless adapter?

Did you use a crossover cable when you connected the PCs?

Forget about internet for the time being. Did you establish a working LAN ?

Once you have a network established between the two systems enabling Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) in the system with the wireless should allow the other to gain access.

An alternative to ICS and it's limits may be analogx's free proxy.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
