So you have a computer with a Internet connection (Lan or USB) and a Wireless Network Adaptor and you want a second computer to connect to the internet using using the same internet connection.
We to be honest the best method would be to purchase a Wireless Router with a lan or usb internet connection. Yet if for some reason you cannot set this up here is how you can setup your Wireless Nic to share internet.
IMPORTANT: This configuration changes your Wireless network adaptor to a Static IP. Which will create a problem if you try and connect to other wireless device while this configuration is still active.
Note instructions are based on Win7 Pro.
- Click start
- Control panel
- Network and sharing center
- Change Adaptor Settings
- Locate your Internet connection (Local Area Connection, USB connect or maybe a PPOE Dialup.)
- Right click this connection and select Properties
