I have a computer that has a wireless card in it. I have it connected to and
outside antenna. I use this to connect to the internet. How do you share
that connection with other computers in my home wireless. I have tried
everything. I have wireless routers, repeaters but no bridge. Is there a way
to do this wireless.
Thanks Ed

I havent tried this particular setup so maybe someone could shed some
more light on it.
Configure your router as just an AP, no DHCP server. Plug a lan port
from the AP
into and ethernet card (if you have one) on your PC. Run the ICS
wizard form the
wireless adapter properties/advanced menu and follow instructions.
What I
am not sure of is how you get your IP address, is it static or
dynamic. The ICS
I think assigns 192.168.0.1 to your internet connection adapter which
could
prevent you from accessing the internet. I assume your sharing
someones connection
or is this a wisp??

Sure.. Theres a program that does that very well.. Part of windows called
ICS (Internet Connection Sharing). Lets me share my internet from multiple
Laptops/desktops/pda's. And have used it with
Cable/Dsl/Dial-up/Cellphone/Data cards/WiFi etc.

Hate to sound "snippy", but have you tried a solution that is built into
windows, instead of looking for an outside program, to do what windows
already does?

Ed was kind enough to email me and let me know this did work for him.
Thought I would update in case anybody else had the same
circumstances.
