    Would ICS solve your problem?

    He has permission from a neighbor to connect to neighbor's wireles router.
    Computer1 - connects to internet by d-link dw510 PCI wireless adapter to router.
    Computer2 - has same make/model adapter, but for some reason cannot connect to the router.

    Wants to know if Computer2 can connect to Computer1 and share its connection by ethernet or USB.

    As attman said, you could proably use Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) by ethernet cable. Would require a special type of ethernet cable called a Crossover Cable, unless you have at least one computer with a self-detecting ethernet adapter. Might be easier and cheaper to find out why the adapter on the second computer is not working.

    Could you supply us with more information?
    The make and model numbers of both computers.
    The make and model of the ethernet adapter on each computer.
    The Operating System Version and patch level of each computer. i.e. XP (Home or Pro) SP1, SP2, SP3; Vista (Home Basic/Premium. Business, Ultimate)

    For both computers:

    When the computer is completely booted, let's see this.

    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

    In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following command, followed by the Enter key:


    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    For your machine without the network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here
