I bought 2 wifi usb dongles (such a stupid name) plugged 1 in my xp home machine, the one connected to the internet, and one in my xp pro machine. after a while i managed to get file sharing up but internet sharing would not work.
at first i thought it was a problem with the xp pro computer but i could use my neighbours connection no problems.

the connection in my house is AD-HOC and the one that actually works, the neighbours, is infrastructure

please help, i dont know what to do other than use all my neighbours bandwidth

i dont care if i have to get rid of file sharing to get internet sharing up
