Default Home network


i got a freedom9 freeconnect500 (2.99 $ at last NCIX sale) and 2 computers....

Now I am trying to setup a wired network. My 1st comp is running vista64 and I am unsing it to type right now.

My second computer runs winXP and finds the Lan connection but is giving me a message that the conncection is limited and maybe will not be able to connect to the internet.

on the wiring side,

I connected my cable modem to the Freeconnect500, then connnected a cable from the freedom to the vista comp who has acces to internet. Then another cable to the freeconnect to the winXP.

Is there something else I should do ? I feel like I should let know vista that it need to share data but after a couple of hours of googling cant seem to find anything.

I feel a bit stupid, but maybe you can help ?
