- Use Laptop As An Internet Uplink?
December 17, 2004, 7:00 pm
rate this thread
to all my laptops and desktops. I have recently aquired some older
computers that will not accept the wireless cards, but will accept
networking cards. I was wondering if there was a way to use a
wirelessly configured laptop as my internet uplink. I don't know if
its possible, but I want to use my ethernet card as the router to my
wireless network. It seems to me that the network card can only be
used in an "in" fashion, but I thought it was worth it to ask if anyone
knows how to convert it to an "out" port. Any help would be greatly
Re: Use Laptop As An Internet Uplink?
Get a twenty dollar 4 port switch and plug it into your wireless access
If neither your wireless access point nor the cable/dsl router have a wired
port, than spend a hundred bucks on a new wireless access point/router with a
Ethernet ports and skip the switch altogether.
