However dire your need, no-one will be able to help you if you do not provide any information.
Your question means nothing unless you explain clearly what set-up you have.
Start with some basics. Like Are You Running Windows? Which version? What sort of internet connection do you have? Give us as many details as you can.
My recommendation - if you have no IT expertise at all in your company seriously consider employing the services someone who does know what they are talking about.

I am very sorry, We have 3 servers, Domain, Exchange, and sequel. We have high speed internet thru adelphia cable co. I was trying to find the interface for the internet connection. We are running office XP on all of our computers. I tried to change the profile in exchange and domain, but that did not work. I assume there has to be an interface to allow or not allow access to the internet.

You will need at least the following information.

Is internet access provided through a proxy? This will require permissions to be set.
What is the gateway address?
Is there a hardware or software firewall.

The more information you can provide the better we will be able to help.

Looks like and old question now.. since ther is no activity on this question for long.. not sure whether u have found a solution already. Nevertheless, maybe this could help.
Using some kind of proxy makes it convinient to share & monitor the internet sharing. If you want to try something for free.. you can try AnalogX Proxy (

If you expect your network to grow, maybe you could choose a better proxy like MS ISA Server.
Let us know if your problem is resolved.
