can you ping a public IP? If not, try to setup using DHCP on the computer2 instaed of static IP.

I have 2 comouters with Windows Vista Business installed (comp1 and comp2).
Comp1 has two ethernet boards: One of them receives Internet (ADSL), and the
other should supply Internet to comp2. However, that doesn't happen.
I've shared the connection of the ethernet board that links the 2 computers:
Comp1 has the static IP 192.168.0.1, and
Comp2 has the static IP 192.168.0.2 and as gateway and DNS server the IP
from comp1 (192.168.0.1).
I have a printer and some folders shared, so the connection is working fine,
so WHY doesn't comp2 have Internet?
Somebody please, HELP!
