Specs: Windows 7
ok, so i recently bought a router: EnGenius ESR-9753
I already have ICS up and running between 3 PCs (LAN cables)

The wifi is set up, can ping anything on the network.
But there's no internet on the wifi...

Is there any way i can get it working?
There are alot of settings on the router about how it connects to the internet (Dynamic IP, Static IP, PPPoE, PPTP, L2TP)
Is there something i can install/change on the host pc that has the 3g usb plugged in?

I want to be able to browse with laptop / phone.

✔ Best Answer
You should have gotten a 3G router so you would not have had to use ICS and would have gotten better performance.

Given the situation what you want to do is the following:

Don't use the ics machine but another pc to logon to the router.
disable its dhcp server and assign is a static ip of 192.168.0.254
connect it to the ICS machine lan port
Connect the pcs to the router either wired or wirelessly

The unit is now a glorified wireless switch. It does not route.

Dhcp ip will flow thru the router from the ICS pc to the other pcs

Excellent :D
Worked like a charm.

I tried everything but changing the IP out of the range of 192.168.137.xxx (the ICS one)

Switched the router to 'repeater', changed ip, no gateway. All set. :)

yeah... I saw the 3g one. It was about double the price... and i knew there would be some way to get this one running like a switch. :D
