Wireless Internet Host Trouble

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?bWFhbHRvaWlp?=, Feb 5, 2005.

  1. I want to configure my notebook (Windows XP 5.1.2600) to serve as a host for
    my PS2 to piggyback onto the internet. Basically its a long way from my PS2
    to the cable/DSL modem downstairs, I don't have an ethernet wire that long;
    not a problem for my wireless enabled laptop, I use a LINKSYS wireless-g
    54kbs wireless router. I assume I should be able to harness the internet
    signal my PC recieves and share it for my PS2.

    On the laptop under Advanced System Info it lists a network card so I assume
    I should be able to start a network. I tried to plug the playstation ethernet
    connection into the ethernet connection of the laptop. Nothing goes for the
    PS2.

    I've tried to use the Network Setup Wizard, as well as the Wireless Network
    Setup Wizard to configure the laptop to serve as a network Host to
    theoretically share the internet signal. It hasn't worked. The NSWizard
    program tells me an error has occurred and it is unable to set up the
    network, while the WNSWizard tells me it has set up a network that I can't
    seem to find.

    What am I doing wrong? What can I do? i'm sure that my computer is able to
    serve as a host signal for other computers to connect to the internet.
