I live in spain, but my internet connection is via ADSL so i assume it works basically the same as in england. I have connected an ethernet cable between my standlone and my laptop, and made a LAN connection in the hope of sharing my internet connection with the laptop. Everything seems to be set up correctly, i can ping both the client and the host and i can download things from a peer to peer program. The only problem is i have no access to the internet on the client. Can you please help me as i am at a loose end now and rapidly running out of ideas.
