    I have a situation where there are two laptops with WiFi, and one
    ethernet connection, but no wireless network in range. I would like to
    set my laptop to broadcast the connection from the ethernet so the other
    laptop can surf the internet at the same time as I. I thought that I
    needed to bridge the connection from the wired network to the wireless,
    but after I bridge the connections, nothing seems to happen. The other
    laptop did not see my wireless card, and I am not sure it was broadcasting.

    I have searched the newsgroups and google, but I can't seem to find
    anything regarding what I want to do.

    if i understand you want to go to the intenet with two laptops and one of
    them is connect to the internet?Can you share the files of the laptops?I
    think the best way is you must have a router for the connection

    Shawn i read this at one other question
    He has also a connection with cat5 cable and sharing the files and internet

    As long as the Exception are set in the Intranet, Trusted Zone, or what ever
    your Firewall calls the control of Local Traffic, you do not have to worry
    about outside (Internet) security.
