|Hi, Here is my situation... Our main computer is running XP Home and is connected to satellite internet via a nic. My new laptop w/Vista is networked via a nic but also has a wireless adapter. My old laptop (which is using a non portable monitor is in the music room and is used for recording only but I would like it to be able to connect to the internet. I have managed to get the two laptops to see each other but the wan port on the wireless router does not seem to be working, ie I lose internet when I switch routers to the wireless router.|
So, I was wondering if I could bring the satellite internet cable into the wan port of my regular router and send the internet signal to the wireless router via one of the lan ports.
I have an old dlink wireless router that I have hooked up and the two laptops
