Should work, but it would be double NATing which MIGHT have problems.  Why not just connect to the Wireless router?

Yes.  Are you using XP?
Also, you could just throw a wireless NIC in the other machine so you don't always have to have the first machine running for the second to connect.

the router is on the other side of the house next to the telephone line and I don't have a long enough cable ... i'm working on another machine which is sharing my k/b mouse and monitor ... All xp .. i don't have a spare wireless card at the moment. It'd be a great shortcut if i could do it :)

You need to get a wireless card and all your problems will be solved..Your router should be giving out dhcp so connect the other computer to the router like leew said.

thanks for the wireless card option .. I know that could be easier but I don't have one at the moment. The wireless card which connects to the router doesn't have an internet sharing option in the advanced tab. ... at the moment I have (in network connections) local area connection a wireless connection and internet gateway .. the wireless connection is what is providing me with internet connection .. thanks :)

More information is needed, what kind of router and how many open ports? Internet sharing isnt the way to go here..

both xp .. i fix machines and I just want to get on the net to download updates, virus definitions etc and because I do it so often it would be handy to hook up .. if possible of course? I could get a wireless card and put it in each time and I could get a 30m cable and connect it but if I could do it this way it would be much easier ... one 1m cable and away I go! :)

It depends on the application you are using.  Games, and windows file sharing don't really care about IPs -- that is, if you use other, better networking protocols.  If you use only TCP/IP, it's a feather on a string, flying in the wind -- you can make it more robust, if you want to.  For Dual surfing, I think you'll find it very lacking in throughput.

Right click on your wireless settings and select properties, click the advanced tab and you will see a selection for internet connection sharing.

Yes, the easiest way to do that would be to run proxyui from analogx http://www.analogx.com/contents/download/network/proxy.htm on your existing PC and turn it into a proxy server,
