  • You can do this multiple ways, You can enable Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) via the NIC properties in Network Connections control panel (NCPA.cpl).  If you need more routing capabilities, you can install the Windows Routing and Remote Access Component (RRAS).

    ICS: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/324286

    RRAS: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/network/bb545655.aspx

    First you need to 2 lan connection. one is on board and second is lan card.

    put internet coneection in lan card.

    then you need to configure routing and remote access service.

    then you can access internet in other PC(Client)
