Internet connection from wired network connected to a switch - via wireless hotspot
Posted on 2014-02-17
I'm exhibiting at a trade show that provides wireless access to the internet to the booths.
I have equipment in the booth on a wired network, only 2-3 hosts.
Two of these hosts are laptops that are able to connect to the internet via the provided wireless, one Mac OSX Mavericks, the other Windows 8 Professional.
What I need to be able to do is to have the physical devices communicate with one another on the wired network, but somehow allow them to use the wireless network as a gateway.
I can set the IP addresses of the wired network to whatever will allow them to work (to avoid IP address clashes), and am able to use whichever laptop is best to share the internet connection.
Any advice would be fantastic!
