As most of you know, most recent DFI motherboards have dual gigabit ethernet, including mine.

For now, I've got the nF4 ethernet connected to my wall to get internet.
I've got my old computer connected through the marvel port, and I networked both partitions to my other computer, so I can move files. That works great.

What I really want to do though, is provide internet for both computers from one source. I want to connect the computer with the DFI motherboard to the internet, then let it act as a gateway or whatever.... to give internet to the second computer. In the future, the DFI might quite possibly be connected to a wireless router with a USB 802.11g receiver rather than to a wall port.

Is what I want to do possible? I think it should be! If so, what do I need to do? Thanks!

I assume if you can share files you are already using the appropriate type of cable, a crossover. Open your network connections, select both connections, and click "Bridge Connections." Give it a minute. Your PC will now act as a router for the other computer. I did this with my laptop and Xbox. My laptop connected wirelessly and shared the connection with the xbox.
