I have a computer I'm required to use in order to connect to our corporation's provided network. The computer is an ageing laptop that I cannot replace.
If I directly connect to the network with a different computer, the Ethernet port is disabled. I want to use the old laptop as a switch to provide access for a better computer. I have normal user (not admin) rights on the laptop which is running Windows Vista.
How can I connect my personal computer through the old laptop to gain Internet access?
I realize that this isn't a good idea, I am probably violating the IT policy, and such actions are ethically questionable - but I'm hard headed and curious.
