Nic connected to windows domain, wireless card for internet access.
Posted on 2007-08-06
I have a windows domain, in the same building an unsecured wireless network (generic linksys router/access point) I have a computer, that I don't want joined to the domain but I need to use one printer from our domain, so I join a workgroup named the same thing as my domain and now I can use the resources (printer). I have to get to the internet, so I plug in a wireless card to attach to the unsecured wireless network. By this setup, I should be able to print to a printer in my domain (nic) and surf the web via the wireless card. But I can't, I can print just fine, but no internet, I can set my wireless to ICS and get to the internet just fine, but no printing. If I do this with 2 nics, everything works. I know I can get the end results in several differnet ways, I just want to know how to make this work. Thanks
