I was wondering how do you share internet between 2 separate networks?
Network 1: I have a Ethernet cable going from my wireless router to my desktop computer which is supplying the internet. Also a wireless adapter connected to my network 2 wireless router. I'm trying to figure out how to get internet access on my network 2 router from the wireless adapter. I don't want to use a proxy server. Is it possible?

You can bridge the two network adapters in the computer that has access to both the wired and wireless network adapters. While Windows ICS is possible, it is usually not the best choice for your specific situation.

If you control both networks, a bridge would be okay, but it does create security issues if you don't.

I do control both networks. Is there any settings that I need to set within the second network wireless router? I've tried bridging the networks but still can't get to any internet sites when using my second network. I think I'm missing setting a route path or something.

Are you just trying to create a separate wired and/or wireless network? or is network 2 physically distant from network 1 so you're using wireless...
