As described in title:

hardware available:

1xi7 HP div7 laptop
1x N140 Atom Netbook
1x 3g modem -usb

I have tried setting up an adhoc network between the two laptops. then add the 3g connection. but the vodacom mobile lite (vodafone version). but it only allows one connection.

I am puzzled why it wont work......one is usb and the other is using the wifi internal card.

Same problem with trying to add 3g to home network through a Sony vio i5. the vio only wants to be connected to home network or 3g, not both. must add that I have iburst (radio connection) plugged into wireless router at home. Media server attached to network. (dont know if way to add 3g usb modem to media server?)

ok, back to first task......need network with shared internet between two laptops. Ristrictions are only one power source (ie one plug, no adapters allowed for more). i7 base/router clone so netbook can connect and use files and internet from i7.

help.....

Hi,

You can acomplish this with http://www.nat32.com/.
I'm using this approach to connect my iPhone to laptop with Vodafone Mobile Connect card.

Install NAT32 onto laptop. Create ad-hoc network between laptop and netbook, and that's abuot it.

If you need step by step guide, let me know.


Problem with Sony is probably related to Sony software to configure network interfaces. I saw similar behaviour on Toshiba. Try to find setting in software where you can disable usage of only one active interface. I will try to find exact steps in meantime.


Regards!
