Default Internet connection sharing

sponsored links

I currently have 2 DELL 1100 Inspiron laptop computers. Both have ethernet ports & one now has a Netgear wireless card for connection to my Netgear router in the basement. If I turn the Internet Connection sharing feature on with the laptop that has the Netgear card, can I simply connect the other laptop to it through the ethernet ports & be able to get online with the 2nd laptop that way? Or is that not what the Internet Connection sharing feature is for?

If your using a router and its setup correctly you won't need ICS, the router will do all the work for you. Just set your laptops to obtain an ip address and DNS automatically.
