    Ok guys i have two laptops, one is for a client who runs a business and his client requires a solid internet connection, it must be hard wired.

    I have checked and gone through this laptop, and it lack an air card, and wireless as well, it does monitor the internet connection (i think), Lastly it doesn't even have a CD drive.

    The question is he was talking to best buy's "geek Squad" and they said to turn another laptop into a router, and plug that two laptops together so that it is hard wired, and then just let the second laptop connect with the internet remotely.

    im sure this can be done, but how can i go about doing it?

    Just need to Google "Internet Connection Sharing" for the OS you are dealing with. Windows XP, Vista, and 7 all have this feature.
