My present situation is that to have internet, I have to go through my tethered BlackBerry. I want to use my wired NIC that is talking to my E1000 router and use the E1000 as an access point for the remaining wireless devices so that those can also connect to the internet.

I also have a wired HP printer that I want to share.

Hi,

Does the blackberry present itself as a Network adapter? If so, use Windows Internet Connection sharing  and share to Ethernet port. Then configure your router as an access point for the Ethernet connection - then share.

You could also use a Wi-Fi hotspot application for your PC to share your blackberry connection.

Consider using Nat32 application for better Internet connection sharing. Www.nat32.com

Thanks for the reply. I do use Connectify to create a hotspot but it sometimes doesn't allow for an internet connection. I can connect to files on my external data drive. I look at Nat32.

Secondly, I've looked at configuring my E1000 as an access point but, compared to other routers I've read about, it doesn't appear clear on how to convert it to an access point. How would I accomplish this?

Again thanks for the help.
