I have looked in PCA search/Google and note similar question has been asked some times with positive results.
In my case I think I have tried everything (pulling out hair) but nothing I have tried works.
So apologies in advance.

Vista PC (64) connect to cable - internet works ok.
XP PC connect to cable - internet works ok.
Leave vista con to cable and plug XP into Vista PC for network arrangement.
I can send files to xp and I can read all files on vista from xp.

How do I use internet on XP?

"Crossbow7"Thanks for the link's.
I tried one I had not seen before and lo and behold I had both pc's able to use the internet - I had lost file sharing -but you cant have every thing!
In my excitement I wanted to get straight on and tell you of my eureka moment but I had an urgent appointment so it had to wait.
Turned off both pc's and a couple of hours later -turned then on - now I had no file sharing and no internet on the xp!!
That's the end of my attempts to get them sharing the internet.
