Specs: Windows Vista and Windows Me
Hello, I just joined the forum and I know in the computer world I'll probably get shot for my screenname. I need your help, I have a Compaq Laptop with WiFi running Windows Vista and an Ethernet port and a Gateway Desktop with an ethernet port running Windows Millennium with a Ethernet Cable, How would I get the desktop computer to use the Laptops Internet connection. I have no idea how and please be detailed and give step by step instruction if you can. I usually connect my Xbox 360 to live via ethernet into my laptop that has WiFi and I figured I could do the same with my desktop. My ethernet cable is labled Xover and I already installed Internet Connection Sharing on Windows Millennium.
