I have a Blue Yonder Cable Modem.  What i want to do is share the internet with another computer.  At first the modem was connected with a cat 5 cable to my computer, due to the fact i do not want to buy a router, i connected the modem to the computer via USB.

I successfully installed the hardware, but it won't allow me to go on the internet.  I checked the IPCONFIG and the ipaddress of the computer had a 192.168.*.* range, meaning that it is prepared to share the internet connection.

The two computers are conected via a cross over cable, and i have also made their two ip addresses trusted via my Norton Firewall.  Both computers are on the same Workgroup and have the same sub net Mask.

In Summary i need the computer to find the internet connection WHICH is there, and secondly share it with my second computer.

Thanks

ok,

So both PC1 and PC2 have IPs of 192.168.1.1 and 192.168.1.2 for this example. PC1 is the main computer.

Set the gatewat on PC2 to be the IP address of PC1. (192.168.1.1) as your internet connection is going to go via PC1 to PC2.

With DSL you have to connect via a dialup type prompt (not sure about cable) - Assuming you do, go to start, control panel, network connections, and select the apprioprate WAN connection. Right click it and select propertys. Then normally under the advanced tab should be an option for "internet connection sharing" select that and then with my connection is says the settings will take place once u next dial.

Let me know if this is the same for your cable connection. And make sure any firewalls have your local network ips in the allowed list
