    Let hope your network is running fine and you are connected with internet.

    You can use a proxy server on you server computer such as Proxy from www.analogx.com. Run proxy in server computer and in client machine follow this step:

    1. Go to properties of Internet Explorer.
    2. On "connection" tab click "lan settings" check use a proxy server and put your server ip address in the address text box and enter 6588 in port.
    3. exit from all windows by clicking ok.

    Now try to surf inter from your client computer.

    Use a proxy server to share the internet connection across computers connected to a LAN !

    Google for it or go to www.download.com and find yourself some free proxy servers or buy one whichever suits you !

    Check out http://www.practicallynetworked.com/sharing/xp_ics/ for setting up internet connection sharing for WinXP. Note that the above link contains a link to setting up details for server in XP and for client in various Windows flavors...

    Takes some time, but you can avoid installing proxy servers...

    Simple,follow the following steps.Make sure both the computers are on while setting up the network.
    On Computer A:
    1.Goto Control Panel-->Network Coonections
    2.Click on set up a home network
    3.Click on next,on a particular screen you will need to select how the computer connects to the internet,select,the first option,"This computer connects directly to the internet......."
    4.Turn on File and Printer Sharing and finish the wizard.

    On computer B,just follow the same steps but in Step 3,select the 2nd option,that is "This computer connects to the internet through another computer..."

    Restart both the computers,you will be able to access the net from computer B.
