hi,

i was wondering if there was a way of sharing my mobile internet access between 2 laptops?

i currently have a wireless laptop running windows vista and a new wireless laptop running windows 7. i am connecting to the internet via an O2 mobile dongle.

i wondered if there was anyway i could share the connectivity between the laptops wirelessly or any other way??

i may be barking up the wrong tree but thought it may be posible.

any advice gratfully recieved

thanks

On the one with the dongle under Network properties _ Advanced tab -tick the box allow other network users to connect...

On both you need to set up a peer to peer network click here

If you manage to connect without swapping the dongle over, the speed will be none existent
