My current network topology is:
As you can see, my PC has no Internet connection, but my laptop does.
As it is (in the picture), the laptop accesses the Internet with no problems, and both laptop and PC can ping each other. I have installed VNC Tight (remote desktop) on the laptop, and it works no problem.
So the question, what are my viable options to share internet access to my PC? I was thinking:
- Somehow setup an SSH tunnel, (PC connects to Laptop, then Laptop redirects to the wireless connection)
I've tried to enable Internet connection share (ICS), but in Windows 7 Starter Edition it is not available.
I'm not an expert in networks, so I don't even know if I even have options to solve this particular problem.
- Laptop has Windows 7 Starter Edition
- PC has Windows 7 Ultimate Edition
