I'm stuck using a hotspot for a few days, and I only have one wireless dongle to share amongst three computers - none of which have built in wi-fi. I do however have a few modem/routers lying around such as a Netgear DG834G. I am hoping to use it as a repeater for the hotspot and simultaneously be a switch for the other computers to share the connection with. I've been through the Netgear FAQ, though it seems to take a detour at some point away from what I'm trying to do. So far I've -Matched SSDI and keypass the same as the hot spot -Put the Netgear on the hotspot's subnet and also changed it's IP accordingly -Disabled DHCP -Enabled MAC bridging using the remote address(e.g. the hotspot) -Rebooted Unfortunately when I try this, the computer that's still connected to the router (the one I am applying settings with), shows an error on the LAN connection. I was hoping by making the amendments above, the LAN connection would treat itself as a wireless AP and start searching for local connections. ?
