    Sharing Internet Mac-PC w/out Router
    Hey guys.. Badly need help this time. I'm hoping to share the Internet connection that my PC has to my Mac mini. But the thing is, I don't have a router. I'm buying one, but the unit U have in mind is a little expensive still so I'm still saving for it.

    I do, however, have two Network Interface Cards on this PC of mine. The first one is connected to my ADSL modem. If I were to connect the PC to the Mac through the second NIC (on my PC) and the built in ethernet port (on the Mac), could I somehow "send out" my Internet connection to the Mac? Make the PC sort of a gateway or something? What settings will I need to do with the 2nd LAN?

    I'm attaching an image diagram to make easier to understand.

    I hope someone could help point me to the right direction, or tell me now that this venture is in vain

    Yep. You can use a feature called Internet Connection Sharing. The procedure varies depending on the version you're using, but most of the work will be done on your Windows machine:

    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
