Google internet connection sharing.

It will require that you have two interfaces in your pc [which you do] and the router dhcp server will need to be turned off since ICS will provide its own dhcp server.

This is built into Windows and not 3rd party software.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

thanks for the info, but since its usb based and i had no extra eth card to add to the
pc, i used a basic ccproxy server s/w which is less than 4mb in size and help available.
this solved my problem. but thanks for your support once again

you can turn that computer into a wireless access point and share the internet with the other computers via wifi.
