I have this scenario:
- 1 public IP address
- 1 cable modem
- 1 router (4 ports)
- 4 computers connected to the router
Everything works flawlessly.
Now I have a laptop with a wireless network card. My router is not wireless, and all it's 4 ports are used. To be able to browse the internet from the laptop, I bought a wireless network card and put it in one of the computers. I want to use this computer (Windows XP Professional) as a router/gateway for the wireless network. At the moment, the card is installed properly, but the laptop is not connecting to the pc. I created a new wireless network named xyz, that I can see from the laptop, but the packets do not go through.
The packet's path should be like this, I think: it should come from my isp, through the modem, router, pc's wired network card, pc's wireless network card, laptop.
