Setting Up Internet Connection Sharing In Windows 7

Uploaded by HelpDeskTV on 27.07.2011

Thank you for joining us today. I’m Rudy Stebih and welcome to Episode 24 – Setting
Up Your Internet Connection Sharing In Windows 7 here on Help Desk TV.
Although most networks use a router for sharing an Internet connection, there are some circumstances—such
as using a dial-up connection or in some ad hoc network connections— in which you might
need to share a single connection between computers. To do this, one computer hosts
the connection and the other computer or computers connect through the host.
Click Start -> Control Panel -> Network and Internet -> Network and Sharing Centre. Under
the ‘Control Panel Home’ menu on the left panel, select ‘Change adapter settings’.
Right-click the network connection you want to share, and choose Properties from the shortcut
menu to display the ‘Connection Properties’ dialog box.
On the Sharing tab, select the ‘Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s
Internet connection’ check box to share your connection.
If there’s more than one way that the other computers can connect to your computer, select
the connection you want them to use from the drop down box.
Select ‘Allow other network users to control or disable the shared Internet connection’
check box to allow other people to control or to modify this connection.
Click ‘OK’ when completed. I hope you enjoyed todays Help Desk TV. If
