Alright, I have 2 computers upstairs with a wireless router/gateway. The two computers are hooked up through the router/gateway (its both in one, by 2wire 2701 hg-d) by ethernet cables. we have 2 laptops that connect fine to the wireless. So I also have 2 desktops downstairs in my room, one of them has a wireless card that I get internet from and a lan card, running ubuntu 9.04 (the one I'm on right now) and I want to get it to masquerade to the second winxp machine I have in my room so I can get internet on both of the computers. I'm realativly new to ubuntu, but not entirely, I've tried coutnless tutorials on how to do it, none of which worked. They all looked about the same, 10 steps involving "ifconfig eth0" and so on. but I cannot get it to work. I would assume the tutorials are for people connected directly to the internet, and not through a router so mabey thats why its not working, I'm not sure. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
