    WinKey+X > Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Set up a new connection or network > Then one of 4 choices.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the replies, what I want to do is hook up my old Vista pc to this internet connection. I have it in another part of the house that doesn't have any cable outlets. This pc has a router and I use it for my tablet so could I also set up the wifi on this pc for my old Vista.

    Thanks for the clarification. How far is the router? You may try adding the SSID (wireless network name) to be connected to the router and see if you can connect to it. Here's How. Now, If you want to share one Internet connection among several computers, you have two options by following this Tutorial.
