    Hi there,

    Probably not the right newsgroup but maybe someone can give me a hint.
    I want to make my XP Pro machine act as a gateway for the Internet without a
    wireless router.
    Just an Wireless NIC and a Wired NIC. Is there anyway that I can control
    this and give only certain people access to that Gateway (shared connection
    maybe). Would be nice if people where asked for password and username which
    I can control before using the gateway.
    So this way I could use my XP machine as a hotspot?

    Thanks in advange.

    You would want to connect a wireless Router/AP to your system instead of the
    wireless client if you want people to access your Hot Spot wirelessly to
    start with.......

    Thanks for the answer. I know I can use an AP/Router. I was just wondering
    if I could without and let XP act as a Router instead.
    De wireless NIC will pick up different users, A piece of software will the
    autorisation part so I can control the gateway (wired nic) with
    username/password.

    A wireless NIC, or client, will not allow other users to log into your
    system to share your internet without alot of user intervention setting up
    IP, Subnet, gateway addresses in ad hoc mode on all clients that want to
    access your computer.

    It would be alot easier to use a Router/AP for client DHCP Handling and
    Internet sharing.

    Thanks again....
    But the question is and was is it possible....
    When I use a router I can't control the access as I want.
    I discovered I need something like a radius server.
    Someone here familiar with that?

    Grtz,
