Xp as a wifi bridge using two wireless cards on the same computer

Hello! I have not found a solution for that on Google, so I hope somebody can help me with this:

I have a laptop connected to an home router through its built in wireless card. It has checked the "share internet conexion" option. I can browse on internet with this laptop.

The same laptop have another usb wireless card configured as ad hoc with the other(s) computer. This second computer is communicating with the first one, but the router does not answer the ping call (and I cannot browse on Internet with this computer either).

How could I join both networks?

I like forums because you find people who just want to help. Thanks!

  1. why can't the second computer connect the home router directly?
  2. because it is too far, so there is not signal enough
  3. Ad Hoc is a pain never really got it to work. I ended up buying a cheap router Asus RT-N12 and used DD-WRT firmware to set it up as a Bridge Repeater.

    if you have an old router laying around, see if it can be upgraded

  4. OK. I appreciate your suggestion, but it is not a solution for the problem...
