The easiest way would be to download wingate.  You can get this from winfiles.com

Here's how you should set up the computers:
Comp with the modem:
1)install wingate on this comp
2)set the IP adddress on the network card to 90.0.0.1
3)subnet mask 255.255.255.0
Once this is done and you have rebooted  connect to the ISP & start up wingate

Comp without modem
1)set the IP address to 90.0.0.2
2)subnet mask 255.255.255.0
3)start up Internet Explorer
4)now get into your option settings
5)now you want to connect to the internet via proxy server
6)type in the IP address 90.0.0.1
7)port 80
now you should be able to access the internet from both comps

Remember you need to be connected to the internet with the main comp
and also have wingate running

Hope this helps you

troubleshooters was not much help when i set it up the first time.

here is the way i set it up

right click on the internet explorer icon on the desktop and select propties

select the connections tab at the top

in local area network settings you should have a botton called sharing

tick enable internet conection sharing

set the conect to the internet to the device that you use to connect to the internet "dialup addapter"

conect to my home network using (enter the local area network card here

and say ok


this will set your ip tcp/ip address on your network card to 192.168.0.1 with a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0

next go to the clint computers and right click on the icon for network neabourhood and select propeties

propites of tcp/ip for the network card

abtain ip address automaticly

restart computer

you may have to set up proxy for internet explorer this is done under the conections tab in lan settings

Best of luck i find wonce you have done it you wonder why you had so much troubble in the first place.

This is a solution that works, but you still need more than windows98 SE alone. I was wondering if there was something i did wrong within W98SE. In the mean time I reinstalled W98SE completely and the internet sharing works.
