dc++ from lan to wi fi in my room(college)

Specs: Windows 8, amd a10
I have a lan port in my room,when my laptop is connected to it,i can access internet and dc++(college lan sharing)
,I need to just convert this signal to wi fi ,is there any way that i can configure access point/router so that my laptop is virtually directly connected to LAN (network administrator should not be able to detect the presence of access point/router in between)
Router/access point should be transparent
what is best for my requirement ,access point or router or is there any device which just converts ethernet signal to wi fi for one computer,and what is the configuration required

I stopped reading when you said "administrator should not be able to detect". Work with the network people, not against them. It's not worth getting thrown out of college for something silly like this.

"this wont cause any problem to the administrator"

So why would you want a setup that the administrator can't detect? (You are pretty naive if you think that's likely.) Talk to the network people at your college and ask them what they advise.

You cant. Networks don't work like that, The IP address you get from the wall socket with be a private IP address and that is all you are going to get. Networks do work in such a away that any net work device that consumes IP addresses, like a router does, will be detected by the administrator.

So unless you want to run the risk of being expelled, give up the idea of playing on-line games on the collage Internet connection,

Just FYI, I am a network tech at a university.

If you're looking to be expelled then by all means, continue trying to circumvent the security put in place. Chances are, you'd also be charged criminally as well.

We look for people trying to circumvent security and scan for rogue wireless networks. I'm sure your college does too. While you could hide a SSID, you can't hide the actual signal. That's impossible. In order for a client to connect to a wireless network, there has to be a wireless network broadcasting and there's only one way to do that and it makes that WLAN visible to anybody scanning for rogues.

As I see it, you have only three legal options here:

1) Contact the universities IT department and ask them about putting something in place for you. Chances are the answer will be no, but you won't know unless you try.

2) If possible, get highspeed internet from a local provider run into your dorm room. Again, you'd need to check with the IT people (or the IT policy) to see if that's allowed, it may not be.

3) Accept what you're given and leave well enough alone and forget this silliness.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.

Buy yourself a 4G usb stick.

That will give you wireless Internet without going through the university network.
