Hi, I have an older computer with windows 2000 on it, a new laptop with windows xp and wireless internet card, and a wireless router. Because I live in the country, any form of broadband is impossible. I want to be able to connect to the dialup isp wirelessly via the older pc. I was thinking because the pc with windows 2000 is older that I could load linux on it and use it to connect to the dialup internet and let my laptop running xp be able to use the internet through it wirelessly. Is it possible to let the pc I will load linux on to connect to the internet when I connect to it with the laptop and disconnect from the internet when I disconnect the laptop from the linux pc.
Is there a better way to do this? Also, I know nothing about linux so please keep it simple. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
