    I am somewhat confused on how to configure a wireless network at home.
    I have a PC that has an Asus wireless network card. I can setup the
    card to act as an Access Point. I can also use it to connect to my
    wireless router which in turn is connected to the Internet. However, I
    cannot seem to have both of these at the same time. What I want to do
    is connect my PDA over a wireless link to the PC and use the local
    network. If possible, it would also be nice if the PDA had access to
    the Internet, either directly to the router or via the PCs internet
    connection. I am not sure how to go about this. If I configure my PC
    to act as an Access Point, I can get the PDA to use the PCs LAN, but
    my PC no longer has any access to the Internet. If I configure my PCs
    wireless card to connect to the router, my PDA cannot connect to the
    PC. What is a possible configuration solution?

    Thanks
    Johann

  2. Hi
    You can not use one Wireless card for the functions that you describe.
    You need a second Wireless Card for this purpose.
    However most PDAs can be configured to work with the Router. If yours can
    you can use the Internet and Network the PDA with the Desktop computer.
