    Is it possible to share an internet connection on a peer to peer network using one internal 56K modem. I have two pcs at home, one with a modem one without. Is it possible to access the internet, send and receive emails on the pc without the modem if both pcs are networked.

    This is something that I've always wondered about. If you are falling about the place at the stupidity of this question, please be kind break it to me gently.

    Yes you can. You need to enable Internet Connection Sharing on the Machine with the Modem and the two machines need to be connected together via a TCPIP connection such as a Lan.

    Do a search at Microsoft.com for Internet Connection Sharing as it is slightly different dependent on which OS you are using.
