I want to know... is it possible to connect my computer to my laptop so my internet can be routed from my laptop and shared between them? I can't use an internet modem in my room and I want to connect to my wireless that is setup in another room through my laptop to the computer. Is it possible and how?

Why make it so difficult, if you have a wireless router in the other room, just install a wireless card in the laptop?

Maybe I made it sound confusing...
My laptop has the internet. My computer doesn't because the cables are in the other room since my sister needs the internet and until the wireless card comes in for her system, I want to somehow connect my computer to my laptop so that my COMPUTER has the internet. Better diagram:

Internet {----} Laptop {----} Computer

ya. How though? I don't have a spare router. As it is, my internet is like this:

Internet {----} 4-port router (In other room) {----} Wi-Fi Router (In other room) {----} Laptop

I was thinking using a LAN to LAN port connection from computer to Laptop.

So are you saying that the router/wireless router(s) are in a totally different part of the house to where you computers are located?
Yes, you can connect using LAN to LAN and enabling Internet Connection Sharing, but it's much easier just connecting the computers directly into the router... if it's near the router.

yeh you need to run the network wizard and select
This computer connects directly to the Internet. The other computers on my network connect to the Internet through this computer.

once that is setup on the laptop you should be able to use a network cable between them.

if may have to be a crossover cable with it being pc to pc, i am unsure.

Right... ok. Ya... it would be easier... but she wanted her own room and I wanted my own room. Therefor, we have computers in seperate rooms. She wants internet and she and my father forgot to mention that there is wi-fi nic handy. So what was I left with? Its a slightly down system, but I need it for knowing a few things (programs, anti-virus updating, etc).
Can't you just kick your sister out of her room and take her room yourself?
No. Refer to above.

Ok. That is the kind of help I needed. Thanks. I'll be sure to do that. I'll also check to make sure if a crossover cable is needed or not.
