i have no idea what this is saying.

The following pertains to External Cable/DSL Modems. If you have an Internal Cable/DSL Modem, you are "out of luck", and sharing is a more complex story.

neone can help me and explain it because i'm kinda slow.

Talking Re: how do i hook up internet on my laptop?

One thing is not to assume your new laptop is setup for the internet. What is your os on the laptop W2K/XP/ME,, etc. If your DSL provider uses DHCP you need to see if you ar setup for it, if not you will need to configure a static IP and sebnet, and DNS provided by your provider. If you are only allowed 1 IP by your provider, we can NAT. But first let look at the basics..

something you might want to look at... some DSL providers use a proxy server to conect. Look in the LAN settings for internet properties and see if the computer that can connect has a proxy server enabled. If it does, copy the info on to the laptop. Hope that helps ::
