    Ok so when i visit my parents and i need to use the interent i have to sit at their PC to use it, however, they have a wireless router which is just being used to share files between their main desktop and their various laptops, including mine.

    So from that i tried sharing the internet connection though the router so that all the wireless devices can to utilise the intraweb... but for the life of me i just cant get it to work. :wtc: Only problem is that the internet from the modem into the PC can only be done via USB.

    Can any one help me with some tips on what to do? All laptops are on the same work group.

    Oh and for a little chuckle for your selves, this connection is the ultra high speed lightening fast ISDN (well it is ultra high speed lightening fast out here in the bush) but hey its a connection to the internet when away from home :hs:
