How can I allow a limited user to access the internet, either through an existing connection made on the Administrator account, or to allow the creation of a completely new connection?

I'm having friends over and I'd like them to be able to use the internet but not have administrator access for everything else..

If the problem is you can't find the existing connection when logged in as the limited user, try clicking Start-button with the right mouse button and select Properties. From Customize-Advanced you'll be able to show the Connect menu.

Alternatively, as the Admin you can copy a shortcut of the connection to the limited user's desktop (which will be at C:\Documents and Settings\[that user]\Desktop) .
