I have a Laptop that connects to the internet via ISDN.

I want to share this connection with other laptops in my home that have wireless cards.

I have a wireless network adapter which I have tried connecting to the Laptop with the ISDN via patch and cross over cables but with no success at getting connection.

I do have a wireless card in the Laptop that does connect to the adapter but I am unable to configure it .... apparently the default IP for the adapter is 10.0.0.1 but it does not work.

How can I solve this .... I have no router .... I do have a hub ....

Thanks.

Commented:
connect the one laptop with your isdn (using a crossover cable)
then use ICS (if the os is 98 se or better)
for step by step

see here

you will have to set the wireless adapter to ad hoc mode, and then make sure all the wireless is on the same channel
get the wireless all talking first, and then setup ICS
you will have to use this ip scheme
192.168.0.x
because once you enable ICS, the wireless adapter on the laptop will get this ip info
192.168.0.1
mask 255.255.255.0
so all your other wireless will have to have
192.168.0.1 as the gateway
mask 255.255.255.0
and ip's of 192.168.0.(2-254)
once you get it all setup, then run these ping tests
from a prompt on the host type
ipconfig /all |more
make note of the ip assigned by your isp
then on the client
from a dos prompt
type
ping 127.0.0.1
ping 192.168.0.x Where x is the ip of the client)
ping 192.168.0.1
ping the isp assigned ip of the host
ping 64.156.132.140

best solution, go an buy a WAP/router
would make your life easier, and would off load the sharing to a hardware solution (not to mention the hardware firewall built into the router)
All the laptops can see eachother in the network?
1. Workgroup config.
2. Wireless Access Point set-up correctly.

If so, you should be able to do so via Connection Sharing.
