Re: Trying to connect two computers to the internet at the same ti
Is there any other way? I once bought a wireless usb adaptor to connect my
pc to the internet and at that time I could connect two laptops at the same
time. So why can't I connect two computers now. How do I setup a ICS? I've
tried it before but only used the HTTP & HTTPS check boxes. Do I have to
tick them all? Thanks.
