    Hi, here is my problem.

    I have wireless router giving internet access to 3 machines
    1 laptop (wireless)
    2 desktops (wired)

    Internal IP addresses as follows:
    Router ----- ip:192.168.1.1
    Laptop ----- ip:192.168.1.2, gw:192.168.1.1, msk:255.255.255.0
    Desktop1 --- ip:192.168.1.3, gw:192.168.1.1, msk:255.255.255.0
    Desktop2 --- ip:192.168.1.4, gw:192.168.1.1, msk:255.255.255.0

    I'd like to eliminate the wired conection on both desktops, but have only one pci wireless adapter and I don't want to buy another.

    So I'm gonna put the pci wireless adapter on Desktop1, then connect a ethernet cable from Desktop1 to Desktop2 becuase they are very close.

    Setting wireless adapter on Desktop1 as follows:
    ip:192.168.1.3, gw:192.168.1.1, msk:255.255.255.0

    I dont know which would be settings on ethernet adapter at desktop 1 and 2, in order to have internet access and network sharing on all three machines.

    I was thinking something like this:
    Router ----- ip:192.168.1.1
    Laptop ----- ip:192.168.1.2, gw:192.168.1.1, msk:255.255.255.0
    Desktop1 --- ip:192.168.1.3, gw:192.168.1.1, msk:255.255.255.0 (wireless)
    Desktop1 --- ip:192.168.1.4, gw:192.168.1.1, msk:255.255.255.0 (wired)
    Desktop2 --- ip:192.168.1.5, gw:192.168.1.4, msk:255.255.255.0 (wired)

    But I'm not sure if it will work properly. :confused: Can you help me? Thanks on advance.-

    you should just spend the extra $$ and get a usb wireless adapter for the second computer.
