    I have two computers, both running Windows 98se. The downstairs computer is the main one, and is connected to the Internet via a broadband connection (Blueyonder).

    The upstairs computer has no internet connection, but I have now installed ethernet cards in both computers, in the hope of networking them. I'd like the upstairs computer to have internet access. Sharing files, printers, etc., isn't important, just the internet access.

    Trouble is, now that I've installed the necessary hardware, I don't know how to get the main computer to share the modem with the other computer.

    Please could someone tell me how to do this. Many thanks!
