    Dear All,
    I need your assistance.
    I want to connect two computers B and C together so that computer C can access the internet.

    Initially,there is a Computer A that is the Host and is connected directly to the internet.
    Computer A and B have a LAN connection between them while Computer B and C have wireless connection between them and they can all see each other and share
    files.
    Computer B can access the internet but it is a client(i.e it is already sharing internet connection from computer A).

    The structure is shown below:
    Computer C(Third party, IP=automatic)-------wireless------>Computer B(client, IP=automatic)-------LAN----->computer A(Host, IP=192.168.0.1)

    Computer A had an IP address of 192.168.0.1 and computer B and C have their IP address set to automatic.
    If I attempt to use Internet connection sharing wizard on computer B so that computer C can share from it, the IP address of computer B will bet set to
    192.168.0.1 and this will conflict with that of computer A.
    How then can I make computer C share internet connection from coomputer B?
    Please help out.

    On computer B in Network Connections bridge the ethernet and wireless connections.

    I can't post to a thread like this without mentioning the advantage of getting a router. :)
