|I have a dilema. I'm hoping there is a way around this without an additional computer.|
I have a desktop computer, connected to a wireless network. That connection is shared, through ethernet to a linksys router through the "internet" port. That connection is broadcasted wirelessly to the rest of my house.
I need an AP style network because my playstation does not support a wireless ad hoc network :(.
My problem is, the desktop computer sharing the wireless connection is on the wrong side of the router. Therefore my playstation cannot connect to it, and use it as a media server.
I have tried:
Disabling DHCP in the router. Connecting cable to port "1" rather than "internet". I could not get the router to share the internet connection, unless I assigned the desktop an IP address 192.168.0.xx... and when it shared the internet connection it was not available to other computers/devices on the network.
Now, if I assigned the desktop computer 192.168.1.xx, the computer was available on the network, but the internet connection was not shared throughout the wireless network. I tried the same as above, wirelessly with the same results.
I have also tried to connect the desktop to the wireless router using an additional wireless adapter. This was in addition to the shared wireless connection, and ethernet cable going into the "internet port of the router". I tried that with DHCP on, it did not work. I also tried bogus DNS settings so it would not attempt to connect to the internet, that did not work either... I honestly did not expect it to as it was a pretty complicated setup.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
