ok, here is what i bought,

Linksys ADSL Gateway - Modem/Router/4-Port Switch/Wireless Ready - Model Number - BEFDSR41W
Linksys Wireless PCMIA Card (x2) 1 for lappy one for gateway

Currently i can file share between the main comp and the lappy, the comp being the main server,

what i cant do is access the internet via the modem installed in the gateway, so therefore i cannot use the wireless features to use the internet via my laptop, currently to connect to the internet i use a Alcatel Speedtouch USB 'Stingray' whatever u wanna call it,

I am so stuck now i dont know what to do about getting the internet connected via the gateway,

the dot on the front says its connected, i get the 2 comps in the taskbar saying i am connected at 576kb/s yet when i look at the settings of the gateway i get 'PPP Disconnected' i aint the foggiest what this means and i am now so drained at getting this working i am getting rather annoyed, can anyone help,

Firstly, have you checked that Internet Sharing option has been enabled?
If you haven't done that, right click on connection icon in system tray, go to properties, then click on the 'Advanced' tab at the top. Enable Internet Sharing on the main comp.

Next, you'll need to run network setup wizard on your laptop. When it asks you whether you have a direct/indirect internet connection, select the one that says connect through another computer.
Once you've gone through the setup, you may need to reboot before you are able to complete the whole process.

Once that's done, you should be able to get on the net on both machines.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
