Internet connection sharing(cable)in windows 95

Hi all I have a friend who wants to add a windows 95 machine to her cable internet. I installed an ethernet card and hooked into the wired router but can't get the connection setup.Tried xp's connection wizard but it said only compatible with 98se or later.tried looking in network neighborhood on the 85 machine but can't find out where to create a connection to the network.Tried the internet connection wizard but it won't give me the option to put in mac address and ip info.Can 95 share a cable connection??Thanks and appreciate your time and help!!!

Right click on Network Neighborhood and left click properties. Find the TCPIP listing for the network card (not the dialup) Highlite it and then properties. Adjsut the settings to match the network. Probably auto but maybe not. You will possibly have a couple of extra settings to make that xp doesn't have if it's not auto. Then after saving and rebooting, go to your internet settings, possibly "Tools/Internet Options/Connections"(varies a bit based on version of browser) click "Never dial a connection" and then click "Lan Settings" You then most likely will click "Auto Detect".
