My modem on my 5080 seems to be playing dead. I have a temp solution
with a long Cat 5 cable strung up one floor via the stairs.

Question:

I have a laptop that conects to the the Internet via a wireless
router. The laptop is connected via a PCMIA card. It has a Ethernet
socket on the back. Is there any software way to use the whole laptop
as a bridge?

Thanks in advance

Joel
