    Have to do this for someone at my school.

    How would I connect one computer, which doesn't have a wifi modem - through ethernet to a computer which has a wifi modem and is connected through wifi? These are PCs. Thanks.

    You can do this with Internet Connection Sharing. HERE is a guide from Microsoft.

    If you can't add a wireless card, then try a USB Wifi adapter or Wireless Ethernet Bridge.

    Either of those would be better choice than ICS.
