View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ad Hoc help.

December 29th, 2008, 11:20 PM
Long story short, my dad does not have administrative rights on his laptop running WinXP. So he can't use the wireless card or install any new hardware. The only way he can get online is through LAN and it has to be DHCP. I have a laptop running 8.10 Intrepid and can connect to the neighbors's wireless just fine, and need to route that through my eth0 and connect a crossover cable to act as a gateway. I tried following the Ubuntu how-to, but the latop refuses to cooperate. PLEASE help!


Neighbours' WLAN >>> wlan0 - My Laptop - eth0 >>> Laptop connected through crossover.
