How do i use wifi for internet with LAN for network drives
Posted on 2009-05-10
Hi all. I am trying to setup a small LAN network at my small business, with 3 PCs and 1 "File server". All of them run on windows. Now I got it to the point where all 3 PCs can access files and printers on the file server via a simple lan switch.
Here comes my dilemma: I want the file server to be able to access my wifi network, which is a DSL modem + router completely seperate from the LAN network. The problem is now when I have a USB wifi adaptor plugged in to the file server, it wont access the internet even though it connects to my wifi network.
There is no firewall on the file server nor the router, so that shouldnt be the problem. Is there a way for me to share files via lan AND access the internet via wifi at the same time?
