Question about Computers & Internet
Hi, i [am] a computer expert, however, i [am not] a networking expert. lol.
so i have the following:
1 wireless router
1 laptop with wireless card
1 desktop computer - with no current link to internet.
this is what i want to do:
have the laptop connected to the wireless router .. wirelessly? (ha)
have the laptop also connect to my desktop computer, via LAN.
i would like the desktop computer to recieve internet acess, through the laptops wireless connection.
i am clueless how to do this, ive tried following steps shown from other research but it just confuses me..
its isnt as easy as it seems
BECAUSE i get this error when enabling internet connection sharing:
a LAN connection is already configured with the ip adress that is required for automatic ip adressing.
this is what i have done so far.
wireless connection connected to router set up using manuel settings
IP Address: 192.168.0.5
Subnet Mask: 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1
DNS Servers: 192.168.0.1, 192.168.0.2
and on my LAN the settings are set to automatic. so whats the problem? i dont get what i have to do, lol. do i have to configure my router ip adress or does that not even enter the equation.
can you run me through every single step, treating me like a newbie. i only wish i could have pictures aswell ... lol
WHOEVER ANSWERS FAST WILL GET A 'FIXYA' as im waiting at my computer for further instructions :P
1- set up router trough desktop
2-run program for wireless, after it gives you the IP ( which it already has, set user name and password for protection)
3-set up the laptop as a "Shared folder" along with the printer if there is one.
