    Hi there,

    I have two laptops running XP, one Vodafone 3G card and one netgear
    GT604 router.

    Basically I want the laptop without the internet connection to be able
    to access the internet through the other laptop's internet.

    How would one go about it?

    Thanks

  3. Hi
    If you want to use the second Laptop Wirelessly, you need a wire network
    card in the computer with the 3G card.
    Connect the Router to the Internet capable computer with a cable plugged
    into a regular port,
    All IPs have to be set to 192.168.0.x in order to accommodate ICS, the
    Router has to be configured along these principle.

    Make sure that you have a valid Wireless connection between the second
    Laptop and the Wireless router, and then configure ICS as mentioned in the
    above post.
