Create WLAN-to-WLAN bridge on MacBook

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Is it possible to create a kind of WLAN-to-WLAN bridge on a MacBook with only one internal Airport Adapter?

The following scenario:
- You are in a hotel and you have a wireless internet conection from your MacBook.
- The hotel will allow only one WLAN connection at a time with your access code (they remember the MAC address of the airport adapter)
- You also want to use other wireless devices (iPad, iPhone, etc...)

Question: Can I bridge the existing internet connection to the other devices?
I know, that this would be no problem, if I would like to bridge between Ethernet and WLAN.
But in this case I would need to use the airport adapter both for internal and external connectivity.

Thanks for any hints!

Okay, so I would need to add a second WLAN adapter (e.g. a USB Wifi stick), right?
Yes, then you could do it.  Airport to Wlan
