Re: Connect PC via bridge to internet

This is easy on a Windows Laptop.

 

  1. Connect the laptop to the wireless network.
  2. Connect the laptop to the router's Internet Port (WAN) with an ethernet cable.
  3. Connect the Desktop to the router's LAN port
  4. On the laptop right click the wireless connection in "Network Adapters" and choose properties; then go to the sharing tab and share out the connection.
  5. On the router set the WAN (Internet Connection) type to DHCP.

Done :smileyhappy:

Doesn't the Vodafone Wireless modem  have an Ethernet port where you can hardwire the router? That would have been an easier setup since you only need to do cascading.
