thanks for reply i looked at link u gave me ,would we both be able to use the net at same time?, or should i just buy a modem/router. is aol not good for sharing connection?JohnWill said:Since you have a USB modem, the router is out of the question. You can use ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) to share the connection. Your machine will have to be running for her connection to be active. Here's a Microsoft ICS Tutorial that will get you started.
Personally, I'd sign up with a real ISP and get an Ethernet modem so you could use the router, much more trouble-free.
