I have Satellite broadband hooked up to one PC (running XP home) via USB port. This PC also has a NIC. I want to add a second computer to use the Sat broadband. What is the easiest way to get the second computer (running windows 2k) to route to the computer connected to the USB sat? I connected the two systems with a cross over cable, which got them to talk to each other, but the second PC could not see the broadband.

install a piece of proxy software on the pc that connects to the SAT directly. http://www.proxyplus.cz/ is free for upto 3 users. This is the easiest way. Good Luck
