Your easiest way would be to go but a Switch and hook the two together then hook the switch to a single iternet connection.  (Most people think of a switch as a hub but a hub doesnt do as much.  You can usually pick up a lynksys switrch for 30 bucks)
If a sewitch is not an option then i would suggest getting anuther network interface card for the pc, put install it, and bridge the connection between the two network cards so the internet is comming in one then out the other to the laptob, then just hook the laptop into it.
short of that if you are looking to keep both computers on segfregated networks and then linkk them together then you are looking at a new network card for the pc and a usb to network adapter got the laptop then link the two togethter.  
maybe it would be easier if you just transfered the files over the internet through a Ftp Clientlike cuteftp or blazeftp and not even link the two computers at all.  it may tak a little more time but it would be alot cheaper and alotr easier and if it s just small files you probly wouldnt even notice a difference.

Hope this helps.

My hp compaq presario cq50 cannot connect to the internet via modem, this issue began when i installed windows 7


Were you running windows xp and then upgraded or replaced your operating system with Windows seven? If so, then your right - your problem did begin with windows seven.
There is an ethernet adapter driver in Windows xp that is not available in Windows seven. I would suggest going to Hp's website and click on support and then chat services and give them the info on your pc and ask for a link to download the driver you need to connect to the internet. they can assist you with this for free.

If your trying to get on the internet with a wireless connection.and running WINDOWS, .and I am assuming you DO have a wireless router all set up and configured to broadcast the signal (not hidden) ....first we have to determine if the problem is at the router or at the laptop AND at what point its getting stuck ... so first try this

try resetting the router (unplug for a few minutes) try --be sure the wifi switch is enabled on the netbook---try---go to CONTROL PANEL>NETWORK CONNECTIONS--right click oin your wifi card and choose properties--highlight INTERNET PROTOCOL and choose properties and be sure "OPTAIN IP ADDRESS AUTOMATICALLY" is checked--Does the laptop "SEE" the router?
You will need your SSID to logon to the router(internet)

If the modem connect to a coaxial cable its cable, if connect to a RJ11 aka Telephone cable is DSL. Most of the modems connect the computers via RJ45 aka Cat5 or network cable. For this type of connection you do not need drivers.

If the computer not connect to internet, check for the NIC card driver in COntrol Panel. If the drivers are good, then open the command prompt (go to START | Run.. | Type cmd and press ENTER) and type ping 127.0.0.1, if you not have a success the network card is bad. If successfull...

Type ipconfig, if you have return IP of 169.254.x.x then your computer is not getting an IP. reset the router and check again.

When type ipconfig you have to display one of these IP address . 1) 192.168.x.x 2) 172.16.x.x 3)10.0.x.x. If you cant connect check for third party software installed.

Lan internet


Hi,

the easiest way to setup internet on the laptop, is to go to control panel, and launch the network setup wizard. this will enable you to setup a new network, and scan for a local area network connection. this will also give you access to the troubleshooter. to solve any connection problems or issues, should there be any. If your using a wireless method. Your PC must also be able to transmit/receive wireless Signals. If hardwired you,ll have to use the network setup wizard, as this will auto determine I.P And any other DNS settings et,c.

Hope this Helps Mike @ compurepair.

the only thing you can do is buy and load a new copy of windows xp Home .

this will install and overwrite any and all files passwords & etc so you can format and use this computer if its factory operating system was xp home this is what you need to buy to unlock this computer but make sure you purchase a full version not an upgrade version of XP HOME
