PCI lan question
I know that a Lan card by definition can send informations and receive it.
But can it be used to send only to a router?
Intel motherboard G33 chipset / Gig lan
I would like to make a computer/wireless lan cube.
Simple design. I put my normal computer setup into my cube case equipped with an handle to bring everywhere. Add a PCI lan card to it. Take a wireless router that work on 12 volts and remove the circuit and antenna from it's case to bolt it inside the cube powered by the psu itself. Run a small RJ45 lan wire from PCI lan card running through a pci slot on case to plug it into the lan port on the now internal router.
The idea about this setup is to give wireless access when going to a friend home without having to bring also an external router and setup everything. So I would like to plug my cube computer into the ISP modem and people with laptop and cell phone could connect to internet.
1- Will the PCI lan card work at same time the onboard giga?
2- If yes will the PCI act as an output only to provide the internal wireless router I added?
