How to share wireless NIC with subnet?

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Siegfried Heintze, Sep 2, 2006.

  1. I have a windows xp notebook with a wireless PCMCIA NIC. I would like to
    connect a linksys NSLU2 (NAS controller) to the public internet but NSLU2's
    don't do wireless and I only have wireless internet. How can I slip another
    PCMCIA NIC card into the notebook, connect it to the NSLU2 with a crossover
    ethernet cable and turn the WindowsXP notebook into a NAT (network address
    translation) box to give the NSLU2 unfettered access to the internet?



    Thanks,

    Siegfried

  2. Hi

    I doubt that a NAS would be stable and work well under such condition.

    In principle (as you already indicated above) you can plug a Wire PCMCIA,
    connect it with crossover cable to the NAS, and use Windows ICS to NAT. I
    do not know if the NAS would work with ICS.
