Hi, I have wireless as well as Network Card on my HP dv4000 laptop and have 2 desktop PC's one which is hooked up with the router and other one which is w/o a Wireless card placed in different room for kids on which I don't need regular internet connection, but would like to update it once a while from Windows Update to stay in tune.
My friend has some kind of setting done on his Laptop, using which I can simply plug Cat5 cable from laptop to Desktop and the Desktop gains access to internet instatntly as its hooked up with a router directly... I tried looking up setting in his Laptop but nothing unusual on it??
Can you help me setting this up on my Laptop so that I can update the other PC when required.

Re: Setting up Network Bridge Connection using Laptop
Well, I'm thinking--from what you said, that he is using a shared network connection on the computer with both a wireless card and an ethernet card. He told the computer to use the wireless card for internet access but to share the ethernet card over the network. The third computer was set up to connect to the network through another computer (the one with the ethernet card). But hey--this is way too cumbersome! Network all the comptuers and use an internet security package that limits the hours or time the third computer can connect. Way simpler! You have to manage the kids' computer in such a way that they can access the network when needed, but are severely restricted when they don't need it.

Just right click on My network place on the Desktop and select property. There you find Wireless Connection . Right Click on that and select Disable option in that.
Alternate , Just go to device manager in the hardware option of My Computer Properties , and disable the wireless device from there.
1 buy and cantenna and a hawking hwug1 (from hawking website). install hawking on computer (usb wireless device) and then run the network wizard to make the connection a proxy server. run a lan cable from the computer to the xbox, and enable the wireless connection on the laptop to be shared with other computers on the network.
If it had wireless before, go into the control panel click on network connections and you sould see all you internet connections. Usually one wired and one wireless. Sometimes a third one depending on your computer. Right click on the wireless one and check you "bridge connection" and if unbridged bridge it, If bridge un bridge it. Then try you wireless, make sure you are near a router for a strong signal. If it does not change go back into the control panel and set your bridge connection where it was. This would tell you it is something else.
HP bought several motherboards from the same company in China. These boards work for about 15 months then they can't find the wireless card. This is caused by a defect in the North Bridge chip overheating over time. This chip is not replaceable at the local level. You can send it back to HP for a replacement and sometimes they will charge you $300 - $500, or you can just replace the motherboard yourself. Check with them first since there is an ungoing lawsuit regarding these boards. Either way the only fix is to replace the motherboard. This is also a problem for the dv6000 and the dv9000 models. HP knows that 30% of these will fail.
From what I've gathered here, you're trying to use a wireless card on your laptop to connect to the Internet through your desktop computer. Are you using a wireless router somewhere in there? Or are you wanting to connect to the Internet FROM your laptop THROUGH your desktop computer? If the latter, are you planning to connect the laptop with a Cat-5 cable or with the wireless connection?
As you ave the modem in bridge mode and also it works ine with wired connection just follow the instruction below for wireless
1.Login in to the router - > wireless settings
2.Configure your wireless using SSID and WEP and save settings

14.after all configuration shut the desktop,laptop,router,mdm and pwr them in seq..first modem and then router and then your desktop or laptop
I assume you have a crossover ethernet cable. put the my network places on your desktop. right click on desktop/properties/desktop/customize desktop/tic then on the network places icon on desktop right click/properties right click on wireless and bridge devices they are now sharing the same ip be sure and remove /delete bridge when not sharing as the ip will stick forever likely. that should do it if you need more info /open my computer and hit help and search for internet connection sharing as the firewall may need to be configured.
