So I have 2 connections form my computer, one to a router, and one to another computer (for sharing). Every time I enable the second connection (sharing) the first connection (web) stops working. Any idea why? As soon as I disabled the 2nd connection, internet comes back. It was used to work fine together before we got a new router. Both are configured manually (with IP settings/gateway).

Hi There

Why dont you cable both computers to the router? Instead of having 2 connections from one computer. If thats what you said or meant.

The router is megabit 10/100 where the crossover is gigabit 10/100/1000

I'm assuming you didn't assign the same IP address to both machines correct?

Unless your using Gigabit ethernet cards on both ends of the crossover it wont make a difference anyway.
