linksys wireless router, 2 NICs, ICS, a hub, DHCP, and a cable modem
Posted on 2003-12-11
I have my network setup, where the cable modem is plugged into my home pc.
The pc has 2 NICs, so all I do is turn on ICS, and plug the other NIC into my hub.
Now any pc/laptop I hook up to the hub gets internet immediately.
So I now have a wireless AP router from linksys.
I want to simply plug it into the hub, and have it route wireless requests through my pc, just as any other thing connected to the hub does. Can't seem to get it to work just right.
Can I do this? I have the Uplink connected to my hub. Not sure what to do with the WAN, but I seem to get it semi working by plugging that into the hub too. I get it slightly working if I set my wireless laptop to a static ip and stuff, but I want the router to take care of DHCP for the wireless side (and leave ICS taking care of the DHCP on the wired side).
there must be a way to do it - i just don't know the settings and stuff....
any help would be great!
