Kerio Winroute is quite an advanced piece of software. A friend put me onto it when discussing a network problem I have. I have an unusual setup and to save a long explanation it is better to say what I have as the only way I can do this.

PC1 (computer 1) has a USB2 antenna for a wireless internet connection. PC2 cannot access the wireless network at all. I connect PC1 and PC2 together with through ethernet and have to setup internet on PC2.

I am hoping I can do this with Kerio Winroute as I cannot use M$ internet connection sharing due to the default IP address for sharing be already assigned to the USB.

Can I access the internet if Kerio is installed on PC1?

Which computer has the actual Internet-connection (for now forgetting about sharing the connection for a moment)?

PC1 has the internet connection. It receives it's internet thru a D-Link USB antenna receiving from a wireless router that issues an IP by DHCP.

It is an unusual situation as the internet is in a rural setting and range is a problem. This is the actual setup:

WWW -> Wireless Broadcast Tower in local town -> My ISP Reception Antenna at the highest point on my lot.

Reception antenna is 200' from office and computers 1+2 and range is obscured with trees and walls. The reception antenna is fitted with a D-Link wireless router and broadcasts around my lot to whatever can receive it. PCs 1+2 cannot because of range and obscure view.

I am connected to the internet on PC1 by using a D-Link USB antenna with a boosted extension placing the antenna on top of the house in range and sight of the Router located at the highest point on my lot. Confused? Right, so am I.

Anyway PC1 works well and PC2 is disconnected. It is impractical to drag another extended antenna to the roof of the house. PC1 is connected via USB so the ethernet is free. I am hoping to connect them both using the NICs.

If this USB antanna connected to PC1 makes itself availbe to Windows as 'just another network adapter', then yes, KWF should be able to route from PC2 to/from the Internet.

Then again: if this was the case, Internet Connection Sharing should also work.
