    One of my computer has internet via wireless, and the other does not.

    Computer A: Windows Server 2003, connected via wireless
    Computer B: Windows Server 2003, no internet (this is the computer I want to give internet!)

    I want to give computer B internet from computer A by connecting them via Ethernet, and bridging the connection. I did this, and it did not work. Any thoughts?

    That would be fairly difficult being that they are 2 different operating systems. You will probably have to get a switch unless there is a third party program that supports that kind of thing.

    That's what I thought, but i am going to figure it out hopefully. I bet someone here will come up with some crazy solution.

    I installed Server 2003 on the other PC to make things easier. Now all I have to do is figure out how to link these two. They have the same OS, so it should be easier.
