View Full Version : Wireless Network, internet connection sharing?

02-07-2006, 10:31 AM

I just bought a laptop yesterday and a wireless router to hook up to the pc, to network to my other computers. Thats all fine and dandy and set up great, but I cant get my dialup internet connection (cant get adsl) to share over the wireless.

Any idea on how I can go about this?

Did u configure the ips manually?

Are u using an Access point? Is the router an AP as well?

Im pretty sure its just a router... I need an access point instead?

An AP may help. Dont know if u need one tho.

Did u enter the ip address in manually?

Are u using a firewall as well as the router?

Dialup and wireless dont need a router either. I thought routers were only for adsl.

What I was really after would be a 4 port switch with a wireless ap.
I have assigned ips. File sharing etc is fine, just the internet is not avalible on the laptop when it is on the other 2pc's.

Would something like this work better for what I need?

You shouldn't need an access point. If they connect (as they do) for file sharing, you have all you need.

Just use the Microsoft ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) wizard.
