laptops typically come with both a wired ethernet and a wireless
ethernet.

If the computer that's working has an ethernet port, it can share the
Internet connection via the ethernet port because Internet sharing is
built-in to WinXP.

If the computer that's working has wireless, it could share the Internet
connection via an 'adhoc' wireless network to your mothers laptop.
