How do I share a cable Internet connection?

Specs: WinXP Home SP2, 2.00 gigahertz Intel/1G RAM shared with 256mb video card RAM
My Internet connection is cable(using a cable modem), how would I be able to share that connection to another computer(one that is in another room for example)? Also by doing so would I also be able to have remote access to that other computer(mine would be the host) in any way?

No, I have a direct cable connection for the Internet(you know the cable running from a non wireless cable modem to a special socket at the bottom of one of my walls. Nothing wireless is currently involved.

You have several choices in setting up a LAN but the simplest would be to install a wired/wireless SOHO router.

You connect from modem to router then from router to each client PC. Preferably using a cat5 ethernet cable to the PC in the same room as the router and wirelessly to the PC in the other room. That system would need to be equipped with a wireless NIC. XP help & Support has a networking walkthrough.
