    We're on BTopenworld ADSL.

    This computer has the modem, both computers have ethernet cards and we can share files and folders perfectly. why can't I access internet on the other computer? (XP Professional)?

    What settings do I have to change on both computers?

    OK I think I worked out how to do it, but it keeps saying something like NETCONN.EXE has caused an error and will now close!

    I give in. Maybe I should try and upgrade Me to XP. Probably solve all my problems.

    Yeah, ME is a load of umm.. well, pretty much most icky stuff i can think of acctually. ;)

    Just make sure you do a clean install, not just an upgrade.
