Question two pc network has no interweb. need to resolve soon


hi all

i have a laptop and a desktop pc i would like to connect together using a crossover network cable. at the moment the most i can get is a few spikes of transmission of the network, but thats it. for reasons i cannot release on this forum, only the desktop pc can connect to the internet. what i would like to be able to do is connect to the net from my laptop, through the dekstop pc. is there an easy/working way i can do this (hopefully graphical) where the desktop pc acts as a sort of server for the www. if anyone gets what i mean...

anyhow, thanks in advance for any help i receive

Errr, like your Dad's "Internet Policy" perhaps?

We'll need some more details before we might be able to help you, including which exact OS each computer is running, as well as why you "cannot release on this forum".

Aside from the obvious concern expressed above.....two points:

1. The easy way to do what you want is with a router.

2. Most ISPs do not allow you to host a website. Check your terms of service.
