    Alright here's the deal. My friend has a PC setup with a wireless LAN connection to his cable modem. The wireless NIC is USB because he used to have a laptop and has since bought a tower. His new computer came with a PCI NIC. Now, he bought a modem interface for his Playstation 2 and it needs an ethernet connection to operate. How can he set this up? Is there any way he can plug it into the PCI NIC and have that NIC share the wireless USB NIC's connection?

    He's running XP Home. I know you can bridge two connections together, but what exactly does that do?

    Thanks for your help.

    Needs to buy a cross over cable from the PS to the tower. Then you have to set up sharing an internet connection on the PC.
