    :):):):)Hello, how are you?
    My name is Raghav Sood.
    I need help connecting my laptop which does not have wireless internet card installed to the internet via another computer. This is my method:

    Computer A is my laptop with no wifi card. It has ethernet or usb. If any of these can be used to connect through another computer to the internet please notify me.

    Computer B: is my second computer connected to the internet via a router and modem.

    This computer B is connected to computer A via ethernet or USB cord as provided above.
    I need to connect this Computer A to the internet through computer B using ONLY USB cables or an Ethernet Cable.
    I have searched the forums for previous threads in regards to the issue. However, i have noticed that the thread is closed and then i cannot reply to anybody at all.
    Thanks in advance
    Raghav Sood.

    Hi Raghav, and welcome to TSG

    Does computer B connect to router via an Ethernet connection? If so, does computer B have more than one Ethernet port?

    Does the router have more than one LAN port and does its sub-net mask support more than one device connecting at one time? If so, why do you need to connect computer A through computer B?

    There is no safe way to connect two computers via their USB ports using a simple cable. You need some type of active electronics between the computers.
