HELP - Evo to PC, PC TO Wifi Router

January 6, 2010 at 12:58:53
Specs: Windows 7

Here i just purchased wireless broadband evo service. The device is USB and i want to share it with other computers.

I am thinking that it could be done in following ways.

1: Making my system a proxy server and connect it to LAN port of my wifi router. Use proxy on other systems to access it. ( Thinking to try it tomorrow but finding some easy to use proxy server )

2: Use some kind of software to make my comp act as a ADSL Modem for the router and connect to it on WAN Port and make wlan connections available for other pc's. ( Tried alot with normal windows 7 options and failed )

Ok brothers and sisters what you think which of these will work? Which ever you thing is good option, name the softwares.

Thanks

Use the windows help and search "ICS" (Internet Connection Sharing) and also, do so on google.

ICS is built into Windows and will enable you to use your PC as a gateway for your internet. You will need a switch or SOHO router (with 4 LAN ports) in order to share this with other PC's.

Typically, you would enable ICS on the USB adapter and then plug the NIC into the switch/router and the other clients you'll be sharing with into the switch/router as well.

Tried this too

Went to properties of evdo connection and allowed sharing

Connected evdo to PC -> ( PC LAN ) to my Wifi router in LAN Port.

Connected from other pc to my wireless router. Was able to see other clients on network and that computer but when i browsed web and etc it didn't work.

Maybe its because WAN port is not obtaining any ip?

Ok brothers i found a simple way to do so.

First i thought of installing windows server 2003 because it has some nat facility but windows xp can do this for you as well.

What i did was i followed these two articles and it worked like a charm.

When you do 2nd article your computer will automatically set suitable ip for your LAN.

I checked all three check boxes when shared my connection. This method works on windows 7 as well.

Sharing EVDO over LAN

Tested on WinXP, Windows 7

Summary:

With this method you can share your EvDO connection with rest of computers at your home wirelessly without need of purchasing any router.
I only purchased a comp in 3000 rs. which could run windows xp and its currently acting like my gateway.

Background:

I just purchased PTCL EVO and tried to search for way to share it among other computers as i already had a TP-LINK Wireless Router.

First i thought of installing windows server 2003 because it has some nat facility but windows xp can do this for you as well.
If you want to use NAT then download NAT32 from nat32.com but what i am telling here is a easier way.


How to do:

What i did was i followed these two articles and it worked like a charm.

2: http://www.learnthat.com/courses/co...

When you do as stated in 2nd article your computer will automatically set suitable ip for your LAN. And you should allow it.

I checked all three check boxes when shared my connection. i.e allow network user to control.... , establish dialup connection....


Thanks,
